Undergraduate Degree Programs:


Minor in Mathematics

Students who wish to pursue mathematics as a secondary field, either to support another major or to obtain deeper insight into mathematics itself, can receive a minor by successful completion of 24-25 hours of approved courses. Two tracks lead to the minor. The corresponding required courses are:

Track One:

MATH 155 (or Math 153 and 154), 156, 251, 283; at least one course chosen from among MATH 341, 343, 381, 451; two additional courses chosen from those numbered above 300 with the exclusion of MATH 331, 332, and 493, and the inclusion of STAT 461.

Track Two:

Math 155 (or Math 153 and 154), 156, 251, 261; at least one course chosen from among Math 375, 420, 456, 465; two additional courses chosen from thoses numbered above 300 with the exclusion of Math 331, 332, and 493, and the inclusion of Stat 461.

The student‚s interests and goals will determine which plan is most appropriate as well as which electives best meet these interests and goals. The choice should be made in consultation with the student‚s major advisor; additional information may be obtained from one of the advisors in the Department of Mathematics. Successful completion of the minor requires that the student receive a grade of at least a C in each of the mathematics courses presented for the minor, or a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.25 in these courses.
