Mathematical Sciences Minor Requirements

The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers a Minor in Mathematics for students majoring in other fields or pursuing degrees other than the Bachelor of Science.  

A student who successfully completes the coursework gains greater depth of mathematical understanding than required by her/his major department and receives recognition for this accomplishment.

A minor in mathematics consists at least 18 credits of mathematics courses numbered 92.129 or above, 9 of which are beyond those required for a student’s major.   Students may select courses from the mathematics major core and option lists.  A minimum of six credits must be in courses at or above the 300 level.  Linear Algebra II (92.222) may be substituted for one of the 300 level courses.  Introduction to Data Analysis (92.363) does not count toward a mathematics minor.
