Math has always come easy to you. It may not be the sole focus of your academic or career goals. You realize that math principles are the foundation of various disciplines and believe it can complement many fields.
In fact, employers often seek graduates with mathematical and analytical skills. Students who desire a more in-depth understanding of mathematics may select this minor. All of the courses in this program focus on problem solving. Many emphasize the use of technology and include various computer software programs that may not be covered in other courses.
Future careers, post-grad opportunities
You will be equipped to enter careers in government agencies and consulting firms, or you could work as a financial analyst, statistical analyst, or financial consultant. You will also be well prepared to pursue a graduate degree in mathematics, statistics, or economics.
For a 12-credit minor:
Students in the Mathematics minor will select four (4) courses above their core requirements from the following list (at least one must be at the 400 level)*:
NOTE: No more than two calculus courses may be counted toward the four courses. The core requirement is either Mathematical Analysis (MATH110)and Statistics (MATH201) or Calculus and Analytic Geometry I and II (MATH 121, MATH 122). If a student starts with MATH110 and MATH201, he or she may count MATH121 and MATH122 toward the minor. A student who takes MATH110 or MATH110HN may not take MATH129. A student may not take both MATH350 and AM332.
>The Mathematics minor is not open to Actuarial Mathematics students
MATH FOR THE REAL WORLD
Chirayu Patel ‘12
As a mathematics minor, I have truly enjoyed my experience in and out of the classroom. In particular three support tools were outstanding: the class lectures, office hours, and professors’ advice.
The lectures are highly interactive. In class, professors encourage participation and the use of real world applications. The professors were always available for extra help if I didn’t understand a particular topic.
The Mathematics department at Bryant is excellent for students, like me, who want to succeed. After graduating, I am working as a financial analyst at Raytheon.
