The Minor in Computational Science is available to students in any major. The minor allows students to develop an expertise in Computational Science while pursuing a conventional major, which provides the context wherein they apply their computational skills. To complete the minor the student must achieve a grade-point average of at least 2.0 in courses totaling at least 21 credits, distributed as follows:

MA377 Numerical Methods

At least two of:

  • MA232 Elementary Differential Equations
  • MA239 Elementary Linear Algebra or MA339 Applied Linear Algebra STAT282 General Statistics or STAT383 Probability and Statistics
  • Application area electives to make a total of 21 credits

Application area electives are computational courses in departments other than Mathematics, typically drawn from the student's major. The current list of approved courses is maintained by the Mathematics Department.
