Requirement of a Minor

Students in the B.A. degree program are required to complete either a minor or, with the approval of the student's adviser and the Department of Mathematics chairperson, an additional nine credit hours of upper-division mathematics. The discipline chosen for the minor will reflect a student's post-baccalaureate goals. The department recommends completing a minor in the natural sciences (astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth sciences, geology, and physics), computer science, economics, or finance, but other minors may be selected with the approval of the student's adviser and the mathematics chairperson.

All math major courses must be pased with a C- or better.
