What is Mathematics?
Mathematical sciences include the disciplines of pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics. Mathematicians and statisticians use representations of abstract ideas and relationships to solve problems in order to arrive at a general understanding of how these representations work, as well as how they could be applied. Mathematical sciences students learn complex analytical and problem-solving skills while exploring a range of mathematical topics and problems.
Success Factors
The field of mathematical sciences is quite diverse, so success factors tend to vary. Certainly, good reasoning skills and logical thinking, along with the ability to communicate abstract concepts are important. Mathematicians enjoy challenging problems and find it difficult to stop working on a problem until they arrive at a satisfactory solution.

UC Advantages and Special Opportunities
Students in the UC McMicken College of Arts and Sciences (A&S) enjoy many benefits afforded through study at a research-intensive institution ranked among the nation's top 25 public research universities. UC's urban, Tristate location offers exciting opportunities for global education, research and service learning, while its student-centered focus includes an 11:1 student-faculty ratio, a nationally recognized Center for Exploratory Studies and a highly successful First Year Experience program that teaches critical skills for first-year students and provides connections with important campus resources.
Freshman Admission Requirements
Students already pursuing a degree in any college at UC can add the minor to their program. Be sure to submit a declaration of the minor using our online form.
In addition, you must meet with the program director so that the department is aware that you are pursuing the minor and can advise you appropriately. Do this early enough to avoid delay in obtaining your minor.
Graduation Requirements
If you have declared the minor, it will appear on your application for graduation. Apply for graduation as you normally would for your bachelor’s degree.
Accreditation
The University of Cincinnati and all regional campuses are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.Quick Facts
