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.
