Mathematics Minor

The computer revolution and the growing reliance on statistics and quantitative research have broadened the application of mathematical principles. The physical sciences, as well as the behavioral and social sciences, have need for individuals with experience in mathematics. The minor program in mathematics exposes students to both classical and contemporary mathematical techniques.
