### Mathematics Minor

A minor in mathematics is a wonderful way to add mathematical preparation to majors in the sciences and in economics, all of which have become increasingly dependent on heavy-duty mathematical theories. It also is a wonderful way to learn about mathematics as a cultural and intellectual accomplishment, one of the most extensive human conversations, bridging many cultures and many centuries. As mathematics becomes more and more a part of our world, hidden just below the surface of our technological achievements, it becomes more and more important to have some knowledge of the power and the content of mathematics. A math minor allows students to savor all this without requiring the single-minded concentration that a major tends to evoke.
