Our department offers minors in mathematics, computer science, and statistics, as well as courses in the interdisciplinary concentration in economics/mathematics. In each of these programs, you’ll take foundational and advanced courses to expand your knowledge and sharpen your analytical skills. More important, these programs help students learn to solve complex problems, both independently and by collaborating with others.

Please see below for specific course requirements for each program.
