Mathematics Minor

Applied mathematics is an inherently interdisciplinary topic as all professional disciplines encounter mathematics in different forms. Many students take mathematics classes not realizing that these classes may lead to a minor in Applied Mathematics. The Applied Mathematics minor is designed to train students to utilize mathematical skills correctly and to apply these skills in their discipline in order to solve problems in the real world. As applied mathematics is a branch of mathematics that deals with mathematical methods that find use in science, engineering, business, computer science, and industry, completing a minor in Applied Mathematics will help differentiate you from others with the same degree when competing for positions in private industry or graduate school and is intended to enhance your degree.
