The minor in mathematics consists of 24 credits: 12 credits from the three core calculus courses and 12 from a broad list of upper-level mathematics courses. Courses other than those in the list that follows (including at most one from outside the department of Mathematics and Statistics) may be counted toward the minor with permission from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

If MAT 258 is selected, neither MAT 259 nor MAT 262 can be used because of overlapping material.A student must receive a grade of “C” or higher in all minor requirements.
