Whether you wish to pursue an undergraduate degree in preparation for advancement in your career or advancement in your studies, obtaining a minor in mathematics will assist you in your goals. A minor in mathematics can be tailored to complement many different majors and will provide one with analytical and technical skills that will make one's resume stand apart. Obtaining a minor in mathematics requires the completion of just seven courses in the department of mathematics.
