The minor in mathematics requires the completion of 21 credits with a grade point average of 2.0 or better. Students must complete the courses listed in the following three items to fulfill the 21 credit requirement.

  • 12 credits of calculus: MAT 295, 296, 397 (MAT 284, 285, 286, are not permissible toward this requirement.)
  • 3 credits in MAT 331 (recommended) or MAT 485
  • 6 credits in one of the following subject areas:


A student who takes MAT 485 instead of MAT 331 may not use the differential equations sequence to satisfy minor requirements.

A student who has completed the minor requirements stated above but does not have 15 credits of SU coursework toward the minor may use an additional SU course toward the minor. This additional course must be either an upper-level MAT course, or an SU course that has MAT 296 (or a higher-numbered mathematics course) as a prerequisite.
