Suggested minors in math

The minor in mathematics requires completion of MATH 1131 Calculus with Analytic Geometry 1, MATH 1132 Calculus with Analytic Geometry 2, and at least 9 semester hours at the 3000 level or higher. If a calculus course is applied in Area A or Area D of the core, it may not be counted toward the minor (and a substitute course must be approved).

Except for courses specifically prohibited, any mathematics courses may be applied toward the 9 upper level hours required. However, the table below suggests some course combinations that might be particularly desirable. You are welcome to consult with the Mathematics Department Chair for further guidance.
