Math Minor

Why minor in math?

There are many good reasons to pursue a minor and those can be for personal and/or professional gain.

  • A minor is a way to study a subject you are passion about or have an interest in gaining skills and training for without pursuing it to the extent a major in that topic would require.
  • A minor can be advantageous in pursuing a specific career path, enhancing your resume by taking courses and training in a field you know employers are always interested in.
  • You may want to complement one part of your academic training with another as a way to provide both practical and theoretical knowledge.
  • You may be interested in teaching, in which case a minor can come in handy for expanding the range of subject areas you are allowed to teach.
  • A minor may also give you a leg up when it comes to applying to graduate school or for other academic endeavors. It indicates that you have additional skills and interests, while also showing a bit about who you are as a person. While a minor may not make or break your application, it can serve as an additional piece of information to make you stand out from the rest of the academic crowd.
