Math Minor

Math Minor Description (effective Spring 2018):

The minor in mathematics provides students with a background in the various theories and uses of mathematics. The minor requires the completion of MTH 3006 or MTH 3010 or MTH 3020 or MTH 3030 or MTH 3050, and any other 3- or 4- or 5credit mathematics course numbered 3000 or higher with the exception of MTH 4410 (which is not applicable toward the minor). Students must then complete a capstone course consisting of any mathematics course at the 4000-level or higher with the exceptions of MTH 4009, MTH 4119, and MTH 4410 (which may not be used as a capstone course).
