The biomathematics minor is an interdisciplinary program designed for students interested in the expanding field of mathematical modeling of biological phenomena. The program of study includes the introductory core courses from biology and mathematics to provide students with fluency in each of these disciplines. Students then choose either an ecology track or genetics track.
In either track, students are required to take a biology course and a mathematics course. These mathematics courses will build on specific quantitative aspects of the biological subdiscipline to motivate model development and testing. Students will also take a seminar course to become familiar with contemporary problems addressed by researchers in biomathematics and present the results of their own research projects.
