CAMS Mathematical Biology, Minor

The CAMS Mathematical Biology Minor is a formalized minor within the Interdisciplinary Studies program. Students must declare this minor before the beginning of preregistration for the final semester of their senior year by submitting a Mathematical Biology Minor Declaration form to the Director of Interdisciplinary Studies (Professor Schwartz in the Charles Center). Electives are to be selected by each student in consultation with a member of the Advisory Committee. This minor is suitable for those students interested in learning how mathematical modeling, data analysis and computer simulation are used as tools in solving biological problems.
