Mathematics is a group of related subjects that concern the study of numbers, geometry, shapes, space, and patterns and their inter-relationships, applications, generalizations, and abstractions. After centuries of evolution, it has become a body of knowledge that intersects with logic and philosophy and effectively describes natural, social, and technological processes.

Although thinking mathematically is considered difficult by most students, everyone is born with mathematical ability. The minor in Mathematics is designed to enable a student with a significant interest in Mathematics to deepen his/her knowledge while pursuing a concentration in another field. The minor in Mathematics, which is administered by the Department of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, will broaden students’ understanding and application of mathematical concepts to their chosen field of study. The wide range of courses available makes it attractive to students who wish to become more mathematically literate.
