Why Choose the Mathematics Minor?
Real life problem solving on the job is often mathematically based. The Mathematics minor provides the opportunity for students to develop the logical thinking and problem solving abilities many employers are seeking. When coupled with a technical or scientific baccalaureate it provides the mathematical maturity needed to succeed in the highly competitive employment world of today. It also prepares students for graduate study in mathematically intense graduate programs such as physics, engineering, statistics, operations research or mathematics.
This Mathematics minor is open to any student admitted to Ferris State and pursuing a baccalaureate degree except for a baccalaureate with a mathematics major. The minor is designed to complement any Ferris major program. Students may use only one-third of the credits in a minor that overlap with the student's major. For example: If a minor is 18 credits, 6 credits may be applied to the minor that are also used in the major. Students may apply 6 credits of overlap between minors.
An academic minor may only be awarded upon completion of a baccalaureate degree at Ferris State. This minor requires a minimum of 22 credits with a minimum 2.5 grade average in these courses.
Also, 50 percent of the credits for a minor must be taught by Ferris State University.
