The mathematics minor complements any major (biology, chemistry, computer science, philosophy, etc.). Employers like to hire people with a mathematics background, because mathematics

  • teaches people to think
  • develops analytical skills, problem-solving skills
  • teaches people to handle complex problems
  • teaches people to handle abstract concepts
  • enables them to work with quantitative data.

Whether you choose the mathematics minor to assist you in the workplace or help you get into graduate school, or simply because you are interested in mathematics, you will enjoy taking mathematics courses with a community of like-minded students.
