## Description

The Applied Mathematics minor offers courses in several areas of mathematics that are applicable to sciences and can be combined with science majors.

### Fully Offered At:

- Kent Campus
- Stark Campus

## Admission Requirements

Admission to a minor is open to students declared in a bachelor’s degree, the A.A.B. or A.A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree (not Individualized Program major). Students declared only in the A.A. or A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree in Individualized Program may not declare a minor. Students may not pursue a minor and a major in the same discipline.
