Minor in Computational Mathematics

The minor in computational mathematics is designed to augment the education of any student of the sciences by giving that student fluency in computation. A student in a major will take courses in mathematics and computer science to enable them to apply their knowledge of the major to problems that involve computation. Given the increased use of computation throughout the sciences, the minor makes the student a more capable scientist.
