Mathematics Minor

Mathematics & Statistics
Swenson College of Science and Engineering
  • Program Type: Undergraduate minor related to major
  • Requirements for this program are current for Fall 2017
  • Required credits in this minor: 22 to 23
The minor in mathematics is based on the completion of the traditional core of calculus, differential equations, and elementary linear algebra commonly required of undergraduate physical science, engineering, and mathematics degrees. Additional, more advanced, elective classes are required, as well. The minor in mathematics certifies a student's quantitative, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills.
