Applied mathematics isn't just about crunching numbers. It's using mathematics to solve problems in the environment of your choice. The applied mathematics minor adapts to a number of purposes and is an excellent choice if your major requires a strong background in numbers.
For the mathematical mind, Keuka College offers a minor in applied mathematics that is designed for students who major in a discipline calling for a strong background in numbers. These include biochemistry, biology, medical technology, and environmental science.
It also can provide a strong foundation in math for students who are moving on to graduate school in business analytics or the social sciences. Courses include a focus on statistics, calculus, algebra, and probability.
- Solid Foundation: Delving into the world of numbers provides the solid foundation needed for graduate study in engineering, energy systems, natural sciences, medicine, or business.
- A Growing Field: Hoping to work with big data, or write the next machine-learning algorithm? A wide variety of career opportunities is open to people with mathematical talent and training.
