Mathematics

The study of mathematics develops the logic and reasoning skills that provide the tools for making decisions, interpreting observations, explaining natural phenomena, and solving problems. The Mathematics minor provides a way for students to formally demonstrate competency in using mathematics. The minor is important for prospective employers and for use when students consider a transfer to other educational institutions. The Mathematics minor is an important tool for the growing number of technology and business 4-year programs.
