Minor in Mathematics

Minor courses of study are academic programs designed to satisfy students’ personal interest and to meet their professional needs. Students explore, in some depth, the offerings in a field of study.

The Minor in Mathematics covers a wide range of advanced concepts such as limits, derivatives, integrals, multivariable calculus, first and second order differential equations, Laplace transforms, matrix methods of solutions, and application of mathematics used to solve complex aeronautical and technical real-world problems. Courses in this minor also develop skills critical to success in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) workforce such as critical thinking, problem solving, quantitative reasoning, and use of computational and representational tools.

A minor course of study provides the student with significant experience in a discipline organized around skills, methodology, and subject matter. To gain the greatest value from their academic experience, students are encouraged to select minors that complement their degree program and/or other minors that they are pursuing.

The student becomes subject to the requirements of the minor as stated in the catalog that are in effect at the time the minor is declared. The department/program chair responsible for a particular minor determines how students fulfill deficits in credits for a minor and certifies that students are qualified to receive the minor.
