Undergraduates may earn a minor and have this entered on their transcript along with their major field. A secondary field of competence may well be more useful as preparation for employment or graduate study than a random selection of elective courses. Mathematics is a logical supporting subject for majors in a wide variety of fields. The minor in Mathematics is very flexible and permits courses in a broad range of mathematical subjects
Requirements: The requirements for a minor in Mathematics include 22 hours at the level of Calculus or above, with a minimum grade of C in each course. At least half of the total, or 11 hours, and half of your upper division hours must be completed in residence at OSU. The required courses are:
- Ten (10) hours with a minimum grade of C in MATH 2144, Calculus I, MATH 2153, Calculus II, and MATH 2163, Calculus III.
- Twelve (12) additional hours of Math courses requiring at least Calculus I as a prerequisite and with a minimum grade of C.
Course Selection: The courses available for the Math minor include extensive offerings in every major area of pure and applied mathematics. Some courses emphasize both theory and applications. The undergraduate courses which may be used towards the minor are listed on the Mathematics Courses page.
Two Step Procedure for Declaring a Math Minor:
- Now: Download the Undergraduate Academic Program Declaration form. You need only complete the information at the top of the form and the bold-bordered cells in the next block. Return the completed form to LSE 213.
- The semester you graduate: Download the Math Minor form. Have the completed form signed by any Mathematics advisor and return it to MSCS 401.
