An Interdisciplinary Minor
To gain an understanding of mathematical biology, a student must be engaged with the subject in a way that is meaningful. Truman State University facilitates such engagement by providing an interdisciplinary minor in mathematical biology. Students completing the minor will have acquired basic tools in mathematical modeling, statistical analysis, and computing in a biological context through a combination of coursework and participation in research on open ended problems in the biological sciences. This minor adds depth and breadth to the traditional majors in biology, computer science, and mathematics, and gives the student a competitive edge when seeking admittance into graduate or medical school or seeking employment in industries at the intersection of the mathematical and biological sciences.
