Minor in Applied Mathematics
The Minor in Applied Mathematics is comparable to the mathematics minor, with a focus on applied, rather than pure, mathematical learning. One cognate requirement takes students outside the mathematics department to learn mathematical practice put to use in other disciplines. The minor is designed to introduce students to mathematical tools for scientific analysis, such as Calculus, Statistics, Probability, and Linear Algebra.
The SUNY Potsdam Department of Mathematics already offers many courses in applied mathematics, and these courses are particularly valuable for students in STEM fields. This minor will serve students seeking to strengthen their mathematical training for use in other disciplines. It will enable mathematics majors to choose to go above and beyond the requirements for the major and invest significant effort in the applications of their mathematical training.
