The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers minors in Mathematics, Statistics, and Applied Mathematics.


Minor in Mathematics

The Mathematics minor requires 20 credit hours of mathematics courses:

  • (4) MATH 170 Calculus I
  • (4) MATH 171 Calculus II
  • (3) MATH 225 Foundations of Higher Mathematics
  • (9) At least three additional Mathematics elective courses
         selected from MATH 220, or those numbered above MATH 225.

Notes

  • Students should select their additional mathematics electives under the guidance of a faculty advisor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.
  • Students must maintain a 2.000 cumulative grade point average in these courses.
  • The minor in Mathematics is open to all undergraduates except those majoring in Mathematics or Actuarial Science. 
  • Students may receive no more than one of these three minors: Mathematics, Statistics, Applied Mathematics.
     

Minor in Statistics

The Statistics minor requires 20 credit hours of courses:
