Minor

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 of 21 credits from the mathematics core, 6 of which must be at or above the 3000 level (MATH.2220 Linear Algebra II may be substituted for one of these). A minimum GPA of 2.0 is required in these courses.

The following courses do not count toward a minor in Mathematics:

  • MATH.1020 Freshman Seminar in Math
  • MATH.1110 Quantitative Reasoning
  • MATH.1210 Management Precalculus
  • MATH.1220 Management Calculus
  • MATH.1280 Calculus IA (Calculus IA and IB together count as 4 credits)
  • MATH.1510 Explorations in Math
  • MATH.2720 Introduction to Programming with MATLAB
  • MATH.2830 Introduction to Statistics
  • MATH.3630 Introduction to Data Analysis
  • MATH.3810 Mathematical Physics
  • MATH.4190 Intro to Mathematica
  • MATH.5760 Statistical Programming using SAS
