Mathematics & Statistics Minors

The department of mathematics offers two options for a mathematics minor, and one option for a statistics minor. Adding one of these minors to your degree can enhance your expertise and create a solid foundation in quantitative science. Contact Ramesh Garimella or any of the math department faculty about adding a mathematics minor to your degree.

Can’t decide what to take? Ask a professor in the math department. Or if you want an exposure to the traditional pure math courses take 1496, 1497, 2335, 3360, and 3362. For an exposure to the traditional applied math courses, take 1496, 1497, 2471, 3320, and 3331.
