# Minor

## Minor in Mathematics

The mathematics minor requires 18 semester hours of mathematics with a grade of C- or better, including

- MATH 10524 (Calculus I)
- MATH 20524 (Calculus II)
- MATH 30224 (Linear Algebra)

An additional six semester hours is required from among MATH 20123 (Discrete Mathematics I) and courses at or above the 30000 level.

Students minoring in mathematics are also required to take one of the following programming courses:

- COSC 10403 Introduction to Programming
- COSC 10503 Introduction to Programming for Engineering and Science
- COSC 10603 Introduction to Python for Data Analytics
- ENGR 10573 Applied Programming Matlab

**Students must earn a grade of C- or better in each mathematics course for that course to count toward a mathematics minor. Students must also have a 2.0 average or better in their mathematics courses in order to graduate with a minor in mathematics.**

## Minor in Actuarial Mathematics

The actuarial mathematics minor requires 18 semester hours of mathematics with a grade of C or better, including MATH 10524 (Calculus I), MATH 20524 (Calculus II), and MATH 30524 (Calculus III). An additional six semester-hour sequence chosen from either MATH 30603 (Interest Theory) and MATH 30623 (Interest Theory II) or MATH 30803 (Probability) and MATH 40603 (Actuarial Mathematics) is required. The courses ECON 10223 (Introductory Microeconomics) and ECON 10233 (Introductory Macroeconomics) are also required. All actuarial students need to work closely with an adviser to plan course schedules and understand the requirements of the Society of Actuaries.

**Students must earn a grade of C- or better in each mathematics course for that course to count toward a mathematics minor. Students must also have a 2.0 average or better in their mathematics courses in order to graduate with a minor in mathematics.**
