Description. Mathematics provides excellent preparation for entrance into many quantitative and high-technology careers. Some of these include the actuarial field, financial analysis and work in cryptography. The minor will enhance the understanding of quantitative disciplines such as the social sciences, physics, chemistry and biology. Strong math skills also increase a student’s ability to manage life in this increasingly quantitative world.
