The Mathematics Minor provides a strong background in mathematics for students majoring in some other discipline.

Pre-requisite Courses for Math Minor


To complete the required courses for the Mathematics minor, you will need to first complete the following pre-requisite courses [by completing the course or establishing credit]. These courses are not part of the Mathematics minor.

Requirements for the Minor (12-13 credits)


To qualify for the minor, the following classes must be completed with a C- or better (pass/no pass grade option is not allowed for the minor).

Area 1 (Choose one course) 3 credits


Area 2 (Choose one course) 3 credits


Area 3 (Choose two course) 6-7 credits

Notes


  • No substitutions are allowed.
  • A course can only be used in one area.
  • ALL COURSES FOR THIS MINOR LISTED BELOW MUST BE TAKEN AT PURDUE UNIVERSITY
  • *For many students, MA 26500 may not be adequate preparation for upper division mathematics classes. Students planning a Mathematics Minor should consider taking MA 35100 instead. Only students with a very firm grasp of the MA 26500 material [and a grade of B- or better] should contemplate taking MA 35300 without MA 35100.
  • ** MA 26600 with at least a “B-” can be used in place of MA 36600 [only one of MA 26600 /MA 36600/MA 30300/ or MA 30400 can be used in Area 3]. MA 26200 will not be accepted for the minor.
