Mathematical Biology Minor

Study Across Disciplines

More
If you are a student in mathematics, computer science, or biology, the interdisciplinary mathematical biology minor prepares you to work at the intersection of the life and mathematical sciences. To gain an understanding of mathematical biology, you engage in a combination of coursework and participation in research on open-ended problems in the biological sciences.

By acquiring the basic tools in mathematical modeling, statistical analysis, and computing in a biological context, you add depth and breadth to a more traditional major in biology, computer science, or mathematics. This gives you a competitive edge when applying to graduate or medical schools or seeking employment in industries at the intersection of the mathematical and biological sciences.

Discover New Connections

At Truman, we know that all fields of study are connected in complicated and fascinating ways. Mathematical Biology is one of several interdisciplinary studies minors available for you to explore the new possibilities that open up when two or more fields overlap. Our interdisciplinary studies major even allows you to custom-design your own field of study.
