A mathematics minor is a wonderful complement to nearly any undergraduate major. Choosing this minor will help you hone your critical thinking skills and give you the background you need to explore your interests across an inspiring range of fields.

To complete the mathematics minor, you’ll take upper-level courses in calculus, linear algebra, and computer science. You can also choose to take a class outside of the department if it uses mathematics or statistics in a serious way. Some examples include courses in economics, computer science, engineering, physics, or chemistry.

Mathematical methodologies are utilized in a variety of careers, including in engineering, architecture, medicine, and computer programming. Choosing to add a math minor to your studies can provide you with highly transferable skills employers seek.
