Students who have taken a significant amount of mathematics, but not enough for a major, may graduate with a minor in mathematics. The minor requires 18 hours in mathematics courses, including MATH 2184 or 2185, of which at least nine hours are 3000-level or higher. All electives must be chosen in consultation with a mathematics department advisor.
