The mathematics minor at the Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography provides an opportunity to deepen their understanding into their own fields and develop professional tools that may not be commonly available to their peers.Mathematics is extensively used throughout the disciplines, including the sciences, engineering, finance, and social sciences. For those already engaging in disciplines with higher mathematics courses, the minor in mathematics is appropriate for all NSU students looking to broaden their mathematical horizons.
