Minor in mathematics

The Mathematics Department has developed its minor program to complement a variety of majors including biology, computer science, earth science, economics, physics, political science, psychology, and liberal studies. As part of a liberal studies major, the mathematics minor is also a good choice for elementary education majors. In fact, the minor in mathematics is compatible with any major at Southern.
