Mathematics Minor
Requirements
All coursework must be completed with a grade of C- or better. At least one MATH course 3000-level or higher or STAT course 3800 level or higher must be completed at UNO to establish residency. 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.
