Mathematics Minor

Minor Requirements

Prerequisite Courses (8 Hours)

Required Course (3 Hours)

Additional Courses (15 Hours) selected from the following, of which at least 6 hours must be at the 500-level:


  • All courses for a minor must be completed with a C or better.
  • At most one of MATH 374  and 574  may be used for minor credit.
  • At most one of MATH 344 , 526 , and 544  may be used for minor credit.
  • Most of the math courses at the 500-level have a prerequisite of 300 and/or 344 (or 544, which implicitly assumes completion of 300). Students are therefore strongly urged to include one or both of MATH 300 , 344  in their minor program.
  • Students with an interest in pure mathematics (algebra, analysis, discrete mathematics, geometry and topology, logic, mathematics education, and number theory) should take MATH 300 .
  • Students with an interest in applied and computational mathematics (differential equations and modeling, financial mathematics, numerical analysis, optimization) should take MATH 344 .
  • Prospective minors are urged to consult with an advisor in the Department of Mathematics to plan a coherent program of study.
