Mathematics Minor

Penn State Erie, The Behrend College (MTHBD)

Contact(s): Michael Rutter, mar36@psu.edu

The minor in mathematics (MTHBD) shows students how to use mathematical tools and ways of thinking in many fields. The choice of several upper-level courses allows students to focus on specific areas of interest. Business majors might choose linear programming and operations research. Engineering students could enroll in numerical methods. Chemistry students might choose numerical methods and linear programming, while biology majors could enroll in mathematical modeling and differential equations. A solid mathematical background can be a strong asset in fields of education, neurobiology and behavior, plant biology and agriculture, immune system studies and pathology, medical sciences, marketing and management science, engineering, national security, ecology, and ecosystems.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
