Students in other majors who wish to deepen their knowledge of mathematics, statistics, or actuarial science can earn a minors offered by the mathematics departments.

For students in majors such as chemistry, computer science, and physics, the minors may require only one or two additional mathematics courses beyond the mathematics courses already required for their major.

To register for any of the minors, the student should contact the Mathematics Department.
