Overview

This exposure can help a student decide on a minor in the sciences, but minors are not limited to the sciences. Minors of mathematics graduates include aviation, biology, business administration, computer science, English, finance, and physics. 

For students in the Mathematics program at Louisiana Tech University interested in engineering, we offer an engineering concentration instead of a minor, and for students who want to focus solely on mathematics, we offer a concentration in mathematics and statistics. Because mathematics is so closely related to engineering and the sciences, it is not uncommon for mathematics majors to earn a degree in one of these fields in addition to their mathematics degree. 

The flexibility of mathematics is reflected in the curriculum, which, aside from fundamental classes in Linear Algebra, Logic and Set Theory, Abstract Algebra, and Analysis, consists entirely of electives; students can tailor their curriculum to their interests.
