Minor in Mathematics

The minor in mathematics is designed to present a rigorous introduction to university-level mathematics. More than computation, mathematics is a discipline that demands skillful reasoning and genuine understanding. Instruction begins with the foundations of higher-level pure and applied mathematics and culiminates with advanced courses that establish the theoretical basis for the discipline broadly.
