Applied Mathematics Minor


The Applied Mathematics minor is designed to build fundamental quantitative and problem-solving skills in mathematics and the allied fields of computer science and statistics. There is a strong emphasis on applications to mathematical modeling and the collection, management, and use of data. Applied Mathematics minors also gain experience in the laboratory and an appreciation of the role of mathematics and information in society.

All of the courses in the minor are offered every year, and most of them every semester, with the exception of CSC-270. Students wishing to take this course to fulfill the requirements should plan accordingly.
