The Minor(s)

  1. MATHEMATICS MINOR FOR LETTERS AND SCIENCE OR BUSINESS STUDENTS
    Recommended for students who are majoring in fields related to Mathematics such as Business, Computer Science, Economics, Natural Sciences, Physical Sciences.
    • Required Units (crs.): 25 minimum
    • Required Courses:
      • Mathematics: Core Courses
      • Mathematics: Mathematics 301
    • Electives: Choose courses from the following to meet the 25 credit minimum requirements: Mathematics 302, 331, 334, 346, 347, 348, 349, 355, 371, 375, and 376
  2. OPERATIONS RESEARCH MINOR
    Recommended for students who are majoring in Business, Computer Science, Physical Sciences or similar fields.
    • Required Units (crs.): 26 minimum
    • Required Courses:
      • Mathematics: Mathematics 171, 172, 222, 256 and 301.
      • Business: Business Administration 341, 342, 441 or 449.
    • Electives: Sufficient courses from the Mathematics Department's offerings to meet the Minimum Unit (cr.) Requirement.
  3. MATHEMATICS MINOR FOR SECONDARY EDUCATION LICENSURE
    Recommended for students who have had four years of high school mathematics, are earning a degree in Secondary Education, and are planning to teach mathematics or a related field.
    • Required Units (crs.): 25 minimum
    • Required Courses:
      • Mathematics Minor (Secondary Education): Mathematics 171, 172, 222, 256, 201 or 301, 331 and 334.
    • Electives: One additional course in Algebra (Mathematics 346, 347, 348, 349) or Geometry or Probability/Statistics or Computing Mathematics selected from department offerings.
  4. MATHEMATICS MINOR FOR ELEMENTARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL LICENSURE
    Recommended for students who have had four years of high school Mathematics, are earning a degree in Elementary Education, and are interested in teaching Elementary or Middle School Mathematics (Certification K-3/1-6/1-8/5-9).
    • Required Units (crs.): 24 minimum
    • Required Courses:
      • Mathematics: Mathematics 110, 211, 217, 490; plus three courses from: Mathematics 317, 319, 413, and 415.
    • Comment:
      Since the upper level courses are necessarily offered at regularly "spaced times,'' it is important that interested students declare the minor no later than their sophomore year. Courses numbered above 300 all have Mathematics 104 or equivalent as a prerequisite. Students who place into Mathematics 104 must complete it but that unit (cr.) does not apply to the minor.
  5. STATISTICS MINOR
    Recommended for students who are in the areas of Business, Computer Science, Education, Mathematics, Natural Science, Physical Science and Social Science.
    • Required Units (crs.): 27 minimum
    • Required Courses:
      • Mathematics: Mathematics 171, 172, 201 or 301, 222, 302 and at least two courses from: Mathematics 304, 305, 381, 385, and 386.
    • Electives: Sufficient courses to meet the Minimum Unit (cr.) Requirement selected from these studies:
      • Business: Business Administration 341, 342, or 460.
      • Economics: Economics 473.
      • Mathematics: Mathematics 304, 305, 381, 385, 386, 401, or 402
    • Comment:
      Mathematics majors with an emphasis other than statistics may earn a minor in statistics but they must have a minimum of 52 units (crs.) in Mathematics and Statistics approved by the Statistics advisor.
