Minor in Mathematical Sciences

Students may seek an academic minor in mathematical sciences.

The mathematical sciences minor complements the skills the student gains in his or her major discipline by developing skills in solving mathematical problems and addressing complex and technical materials and by providing a mathematical background to support study in other areas, such as business and management, computer and information technology, and the biological and social sciences.

Requirements for the Minor

A minor in mathematical sciences requires the completion of 17 credits of coursework in mathematics. All MATH courses numbered 130 or above apply.

Courses already applied toward other degree requirements (e.g., major or general education) may not be applied toward the minor. At least 6 credits must be earned in upper-level courses (numbered 300 or above). Prerequisites apply for all courses.
