The study of mathematics develops the logic and reasoning skills that provide the tools for making decisions, interpreting observations, explaining natural phenomena, and solving problems. The Mathematics minor provides a way for students to formally demonstrate competency in using mathematics. The minor is important for prospective employers and for use when students consider a transfer to other educational institutions. The Mathematics Minor is an important tool for the growing number of technology and business 4-year programs.


A minimum of 20 credit hours is needed to complete the minor in Mathematics as follows:


MATH 141 Statistics I 3
MATH 161 Calculus I 4
MATH 162 Calculus II 4


(at least 2 must be MATH designated)
