I was wondering what the general purpose of having a minor would be. I can understand having a minor in a certain language can be good for various job prospects but what about a minor in the sciences? At my institute, in order to get a minor in mathematics, the courses we need are: - First-year calculus: Calc I and Calc II - Linear algebra (Probably very basic: "An introduction to vectors, matrices, systems of linear equations and three-dimensional geometry") - 9 credit hours from 2nd or 3rd year math courses (3 credit course = 1 semester class) which, to me, does not seem very rigorous at all. I'm interested in keeping up with my mathematics but plan on pursuing a degree in pharmacy. Should I pursue a minor in mathematics seeing how I'm going to enroll in various math courses during the summer and on the side while doing my degree? Pharmacy only requires Calc I and I'm willing to go the distance to learn more. Also, are there any particular "core" courses that I absolutely must have under my belt that any undergraduate mathematician would have?
