Math underlies everything that we do.
If you’re pursuing a career in the sciences, programming, or business, you’ll benefit greatly from having the solid mathematics background that this minor provides.
What you’ll study
You’ll study key areas of mathematics, including calculus, differential equations, graph theory, and algorithms. In each course, you’ll use these concepts to solve complex problems with real world applications. You’ll also use advanced tools like computer modeling to aid you in your research.

A core tenet of the Computer Science program is optimization, which helps us realize how we can best improve the solution to a problem. I had several opportunities in my courses where I could take a step back and enhance certain solutions to the problems in class or gain a new perspective by talking to professors during their office hours. The program’s structured approach to learning via experimentation and mistakes forces you to examine how you can better improve your coding skills. Additionally, the direct line of communication to professionally experienced faculty is also key to training a better generation of developers.
