## Mathematics minor

A **minor in mathematics** requires completion of 18 credits. A student may not complete both a major and a minor in mathematics. In meeting the requirements of this discipline-based minor, a student may not use more than nine credits used to meet the requirements of another major or minor.

- MATH 102, 221, 222
- Either MATH 311 and 312 or MATH 321 and 322
- One other course at the 300 level in mathematics

- Required courses:
- MATH 102 - Calculus II
