Program Contact: Cornelius Nelan  203-582-8003

Mathematics is a universal language that is essential in the natural and social sciences, business and engineering. This minor gives you more than just a way to fine-tune specific mathematical skills; it also offers an opportunity to strengthen your logic, reasoning and problem-solving capabilities.

In the mathematics minor, courses in advanced statistics teach you to analyze complex data and perform high-level research, while cryptography courses provide an introduction to the world of securing data and IT security. Geometric concepts apply as much to set design and the visual arts as they do to architecture and civil engineering. Students develop expertise that is applicable in nearly every field, from computer science and finance to education and health care, and obtain tools that provide a competitive advantage.

To complete a minor in mathematics, a student is required to complete 18 credits of mathematics classes.
