Minor in Mathematics


School of Arts and Sciences



A minor in mathematics is designed to provide an introduction to the methods of mathematics and a complement to majors that have a strong quantitative component such as the natural sciences, computer science and business economics. A minor in mathematics may be used by students who wish to develop their ability to reason logically and form habits of precise thought and expression. Because mathematics is the underlying language of an ever more technological society, courses in the minor will help provide students with the tools to solve significant problems in many academic areas. Students should consult their major advisors and faculty in the mathematics department about the appropriateness of this minor to their course of study.
