There is no application process to become a minor in computational finance. To declare a minor, a student must satisfy one of the following conditions:
Upon satisfying one of these two criteria, the student declares the minor by notifying
The required courses for the Computational Finance Minor are
21-241 | Matrix Algebra (or 21-341 Linear Algebra I) |
21-259 | Calculus in Three Dimensions |
21-260 | Differential Equations |
21-270 | Introduction to Mathematical Finance |
21-370 | Discrete-Time Finance |
21-420 | Continuous-Time Finance |
21-256 Multivatraite Analysis may be substituted for 21-259 Calculus in Three Dimensions.
To avoid excessive double counting, Mathematical Sciences majors who wish to earn the minor in Computational Finance may not use 21-270, 21-370 and 21-420 to satisfy any requirement other than the Computational Finance minor requirement.
Students minoring in Computational Finance are strongly encouraged to take one or two economics courses, e.g. 73-150, 73-200, 73-252 or 73-253.
