Mathematics Minor

The Mathematics Minor is a program of study consisting of a core of required courses totaling 8 units, 16 units of advanced work in mathematics, and additional coursework in mathematics, all totaling 30 units. At least 15 of these units must be at 300 level or above. The units of advanced work consist of two tracks (each track consisting of at least two courses) chosen from a list shown in the catalog. These units are to be selected in accordance with a student's career objectives and interests.

For students in engineering or physics, the Mathematics Minor provides an excellent preparation for graduate study and generally requires only 4 to 6 courses beyond those required for their major. The Mathematics Minor is also appropriate for individuals wishing to obtain a teaching credential in mathematics, and provides some of the coursework for the subject waiver in mathematics.
