The department has a close working relationship with the Department of Biological Sciences in education and research and offers a minor in biomathematics. This minor consists of 30 credits from the following core courses plus, an additional 6 credit hours from electives listed below. Two of the core courses cannot be used to satisfy the requirements of any other major and none of the electives can be used to satisfy the requirements of any other major. At least 3 of the elective credits must be from the MATH courses on the list. The Undergraduate Program Director may approve alternative courses in justified individual situations upon petition by the student.
A majority of courses offered toward the minor must be completed in residence at UMBC. A grade of "C" or better must be earned in all courses and prerequisites applied toward the minor. A course taken on a P/F basis will not count toward the minor.
