Minoring in mathematics is a great way to add technical depth to many other disciplines. Students who plan to pursue careers in business, operations research, risk analysis, computer programming and other areas benefit from a focused mathematics education. Many employers seek candidates who are well versed in money management, statistics, data analysis and formula application to support their organizations’ growth. By adding a mathematics minor to other majors in the College of Arts and Science or the Haub School of Business, graduates are prepared to excel in graduate school or their careers, in fields such as biology, sociology, library science and linguistics.
A minor requires six mathematics courses at the level of MAT 161 (Calculus I) and above. A course used for the Math GEP requirement cannot be counted towards the minor.
