Applied Mathematics (Minor)
What is a minor in applied mathematics?
The applied mathematics minor introduces students to variety of fields and research specializations in which mathematics plays a critical role in the solution of important scientific and technological problems. You’ll learn to address both the theoretical and practical aspects of real-world issues,with the option to explore topics such as randomness, probability, nonlinear dynamics and chaos, and mathematical optimization. Combine this minor with a major in the sciences, engineering or business to enhance career your future graduate studies.
Why study applied mathematics at UNH?
You’ll work with a diverse faculty of accomplished mathematicians in a department where pure mathematics, applied mathematics, mathematics education and statistics are integrated, giving you exposure to many different facets of knowledge. Upper-level mathematics classes tend to be small, so you’ll enjoy close connections to professors as they delve into the intricacies of advanced ideas.

Curriculum & Requirements
This minor program introduces students to variety of fields and research specializations in which mathematics plays a critical role in the solution of important scientific and technological problems.
Credit toward the minor will be given only for courses passed with C- or better, and a 2.0 grade-point average must be maintained in courses for the minor. Courses taken on the pass/fail basis may not be used for the minor. Students should declare their intent to earn a minor as early as possible and no later than the end of the junior year. During the final term, an application should be made to the dean of the student's major college to have the minor shown on the academic record. Students must consult with their major adviser and also the minor supervisor.
It requires a minimum of five MATH courses as detailed in the minor requirements. No more than 8.0 credits (or two courses) used by the student to satisfy major requirements may be used for the minor. Additional courses from the list of course electives may be utilized to meet the five-course minimum.
