Math Department requirements for the minor are changing starting in Fall 2013, so below are the requirements for both those who claim Academic Year 2012-2013 and earlier, and for those who claim Academic Year 2013-2014 and later.
The department requirements for the minor are:
Students majoring in another department within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences or in another
college within the University may elect to minor in mathematics. The minor is designed to give students

The University requires that at least 15 credits of 2000-level courses be taken for the minor in courses
specified by the granting department, that each course being used for the minor have a grade of C (2.0)

described in more detail in the
Note: The 2141-2144 track is a rigorous and proof-oriented challenging sequence in single and multivariable calculus aimed at highly motivated entering first-year students with strong backgrounds. Students who don't have outstanding math skills or who have completed a different calculus sequence already should follow a different track for the math minor. Some accommodations will be made for those who start in the 2141-2144 track and who wish to change to another track. Please contact the department for more information as indicated below.

Math Minor Form
With the information you enter on the form, we will create a final minor plan of study and email it (in pdf format) directly to the university degree auditors. We will also cc you at the email addresses you enter on the form so you will have a copy for your records and confirmation that the minor plan of study submission was completed.
The earliest the
Math Minor Form can be filled out is once you have registered for the last class you will use for the minor; the latest is about half-way through your last semester before graduating with the associated bachelor's degree.
Math 2000-Level Course Prerequisites
The prerequisite for Math 2000-level courses is Math 1132Q or Math 1152Q.
For this reason, students intending to minor in mathematics, not using the 2141-2144 track, should take
Math 1132Q or 1152Q
as early in their career as possible.
