Mathematics Minor

A minor in Mathematics may be earned by successful completion of 26 hours in Mathematics courses consisting of MATH 1950, 1960, 1970, and four Mathematics courses at the 2000 (excluding MATH 2200), 3000, or 4000 level (including STAT 3800).
Students expecting to earn a minor in Mathematics need to complete a 'Change in Academic Program' form which may be obtained in the Mathematics Department Academic Coordinator office, DSC 204.

For majors that require 20-23 math credit hours, it is possible to obtain a math minor relatively easily, with very few additional courses. For example:

Computer Science Majors: In addition to MATH 1950, MATH 1960, and MATH 1970, all MATH/CSCI cross-listed crosses qualify, but credit will not be given for both MATH 2230 and CSCI 2030.

Engineering Majors:

  • Architectural: 1950, 1960, 1970, 2350, STAT 3800, plus 2 additional Math courses

  • Civil: 1950, 1960, 1970, 2350, STAT 3800, plus 2 additional Math courses

  • Computer: 1950, 1960, 1970, 2350, 2050, STAT 3800, plus 1 additional Math course

  • Electronics: 1950, 1960, 1970, 2350, STAT 3800, plus 2 additional Math courses

  • Construction: 1950, 1960, 1970, 2350, STAT 3800, plus 2 additional Math courses

Information Science and Technology majors:

  • Bioinformatics: 1950, 1960, 1970, 2050, STAT 3800, plus 2 additional Math courses

Secondary Education Majors with Math 7-12 Endorsement: These students automatically fulfill the 26 hours required for a Math minor with required coursework for the major.
