Mathematics Minor

You may be surprised at how many career opportunities there are for people with mathematical talent and training. Mathematics and computational science are utilized in almost every discipline of science, engineering, industry, and technology. New application areas are constantly being discovered and established techniques are being applied in new ways and in emerging fields.

At CBU, we are concerned with more than just providing the required coursework to be a skilled mathematician. We not only provide courses in calculus, differential equations, statistics and linear algebra, but we also care about you and want to help you prepare for the career that is right for you.
