To complete a minor in mathematics, 7 courses (24 credits) must be taken in mathematics in accordance with the following schedule.
Minor courses must be completed within the student's graduation timeline. A minimum GPA of 2.0 must be achieved in the minor coursework.
Please note, with the exception of the three 4-credit Calculus courses, mathematics courses are worth 3 credits. Inasmuch as the required courses are sequential and ordinarily offered yearly, the student may complete the minor in mathematics in - to reckon from the commencement of the semester in which Analytical Geometry and Calculus I is taken (and passed) - as few as two and one-half academic years; it is more likely, however, that the completion of the minor will require at least three full academic years.
