Mathematics & Statistics Minors & Concentration
Definitive information on the minors can be found on the registrar's Web site.
Minors in mathematics consist of MTH 211 plus 16 other credits selected from any of the first four groups below. In the applied mathematics minor, four of the credits may be replaced by eight credits from the list in the description of major requirements found above or by other courses approved by the department.
Applied Mathematics Minor
- MTH 153, 204, 212, 222, 225, 233, 243, 245, 246, 247, 254, 255, 264, 270, 325, 346, 353, 364, PHY 211
Discrete Mathematics Minor
- MTH 153, 270, 233, 238, 254, 255, 333, 353, CSC 250, PHI 220
- MTH 153, 212, 217, 224, 233, 238, 243, 325, 333, 342, 343, PHI 220
Mathematical Statistics Minor
- MTH 212, 246, 247, 290, 346
Applied Statistics Minor
The minor in applied statistics does not require MTH 211, but consists of five courses:
- introductory statistics, plus two intermediate statistics classes
- two (or more) courses from an approved list
Detailed information about the statistics minor can be found here.
Please note: Some courses, including topics courses and Special Studies, might fall into different groups in different years depending on the material covered. Normally, all courses that are counted towards either the major or minor must be taken for a letter grade.
Biomathematical Sciences Concentration
The Biomathematical Sciences Concentration allows students to integrate the study of mathematics, statistics, computer science and engineering with biology, biochemistry and neuroscience. In addition to the gateway course, the electives and the capstone, the concentration includes two hands-on research experiences in labs that use the tools of the mathematical and computer sciences to parse the meaning of biological phenomena.
