A minor in mathematical sciences requires the completion of 68 credits of coursework in MATH courses numbered 695 or higher, including at least 8 credits at the 855 or 955 level. Courses may be chosen from the following:
We accept applications all year round. We encourage applicants to complete their applications a few months before their intended start term. This ensures sufficient time to render an admissions decision. (International students seeking a visa should apply at least 8 months prior to their intended start term, and can be admitted to the Applied Economics program for summer, fall or spring semesters.)

Prerequisite: MATH 695. An explication of the basic concepts of linear algebra. The aim is to analyze and evaluate matrices to determine solvability and solve systems of linear equations. Topics include systems of linear equations, linear transformations, vectors, vector spaces, matrix separations, products and separations, subspaces, bases, and linear independence. Discussion also covers solutions of problems in physics, engineering, and the sciences. Students may receive credit for only one of the following courses: MATH 795, MATH 955, or MATH 966.
This module introduces students to macroeconomic theory and policy at an advanced level. The module first deals with the fundamental issues of demand, growth, unemployment and inflation in the context of classical and Keynesian approaches to understanding aggregate economic behaviour. The module then discusses selected issues in current economic policy and illustrates how different economic theories approach these issues, how economic models are applied to current problems and how different theories lend themselves to different policy conclusions. The topics covered will differ each semester but may well include issues such as unemployment, financial stability and the causes and effects of changes in income distribution.
Students in Business Economics take courses in microeconomic theory, macroeconomic theory, probability and statistics, econometrics, business history, two MBA elective curriculum courses , and other doctoral level courses.
Focuses on classical theories of consumer and producer behaviour, the theory of competitive equilibrium, models of imperfect competition and information economics, amongst other topics.

Gives more emphasis to mathematical methods following a proof-based approach, and provides a firm grounding in classical microeconomic theory as well as a variety of recent developments from behavioural economics and other fields.
Prerequisite: CCJS 655, CCJS 656, CCJS 655, CSIA 856, or CSIA 865. Recommended: CCJS 789. An examination of crimes involving the use of computers. Topics include federal and state laws and investigative and preventive methods used to secure computers. Case studies emphasize security. Students may receive credit for only one of the following courses: CCJS 895, CCJS 996, or CCJS 998C.
We carefully consider each application on an individual basis, taking into account all the information presented on your application form, including your:
It is recommended that you take GVPT 655, GVPT 656, or GVPT 675 as the first course in the minor (if you have not already applied the course toward other degree requirements).
The aim of this course is to develop your analytical and modeling abilities and enable you to apply microeconomics and econometrics tools to understand the health care sector and the demand for health. This course will provide you with the experience and the skills you need to work as a health economists in private or public of institutions doing health economics.
Managerial economics involves applying economic theory and using the tools of decision science to examine how an organization can achieve its objectives most efficiently in the face of constraints. Background preparation: 6 credit hours in mathematics and 8 credit hours in microeconomics, macroeconomics and statistics or equivalent.
