# Mathematics Minor

### Requirements

All coursework must be completed with a grade of C- or better. Three tracks are available.

The **Traditional Track** Mathematics Minor allows for the most flexibility in Upper Division courses. Several programs including Engineering, Computer Science, and Secondary Education: Math Endorsement can complete a Traditional Track Mathematics Minor with few or no additional courses.

The **Discrete Mathematics** **Track** Mathematics Minor bypasses MATH 1960 Calculus II and instead guides students towards courses that are relevant to their specific fields. These include Biology, Neuroscience, Philosophy, Political Science, Physics, Economics, Finance, Social Sciences, Network Sciences, Computer Science, and Engineering.

The **Cybersecurity Track **Mathematics Minor bypasses MATH 1960 Calculus II and instead guides students towards courses that are relevant to work in Cybersecurity.

**Traditional Track**

The Traditional Track minor in mathematics may be obtained by successful completion of 19-20 credits in mathematics courses consisting of:

Code | Title | Credits |
---|---|---|

MATH 1950 | CALCULUS I | 5 |

MATH 1960 | CALCULUS II | 5 |

MATH 2030 | DISCRETE MATHEMATICS (or CSCI 2030 MATHEMATICAL FOUNDATIONS OF COMPUTER SCIENCE) | 3 |

or MATH 2230 | INTRODUCTION TO ABSTRACT MATH | |

One 3000-4000 level Math/Stat course ^{1} | 3 | |

One additional math course 1970 or above | 3-4 | |

Total Credits | 19-20 |

^{1} | STAT 3000 does not count towards the Mathematics Minor. |
