Minors in Mathematical Sciences

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers three options for minor programs:

Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Statistics.

These are open to all students enrolled at the University.  Each option requires a minimum of five courses as detailed below.  Students whose major program includes by specific course number more than eight credits in these requirements must select additional courses from the list of optional courses for the minor in order to meet the required five-course minimum. 

In all courses used to satisfy the requirements of a minor program, the university requires that a student earn a grade of C-or better and have an overall grade-point average of at least 2.00 in these courses.

Mathematics Minor
Required (3): MATH 528*, MATH 531, and either MATH 761 or MATH 767
Electives (2): Two courses chosen from: MATH 657, 658, 761, 762, 765, 767, 768, 769, 770, 772, 776, 783, 784, 788
* This requirement can be satisfied by MATH 526, Linearity II.

Applied Mathematics Minor
Required (4): MATH 528*, 645*, 745 and 753
Elective (1): One course chosen from: MATH 647, 746, 747, or 755
* These requirements can be satisfied by MATH 525-526, Linearity I-II.

Statistics Minor
