Mathematics Minor
The department offers undergraduate preparation for positions in government, business, and industry and for graduate work in mathematics and statistics. Each student’s minor program is individually constructed in consultation with an advisor.
Mathematics and Computer Science majors cannot minor in Mathematics.
Minor Requirements
The minor is intended for any student, regardless of major, with a strong interest in mathematics. While students in such closely allied fields as computer science or physics often complete double majors, students with more distantly related majors such as psychology or history may find the minor useful.
The flexibility of the mathematics minor program allows each student, in consultation with a mathematics advisor, to tailor the program to his or her needs.
Code | Title | Credits |
---|---|---|
MATH courses at or above the 200-level ^{1} | 30 | |
15 upper-division MATH credits ^{2, 3} |
- ^{ 1 }
Students cannot receive credit for Statistical Models and Methods (MATH 343), Probability and Statistics for Data Science (MATH 345M), or Probability and Statistics for Data Science (DSCI 345M) after completing Introduction to Mathematical Methods of Statistics II (MATH 462).
- ^{ 2 }
Students may one count one of: Statistical Models and Methods (MATH 343), Probability and Statistics for Data Science (MATH 345M), Introduction to Mathematical Methods of Statistics II (MATH 462) toward the upper-division requirement for the minor.
- ^{ 3 }
Students may not use Statistical Methods I (MATH 425) toward the upper-division requirement for the minor.
To earn a minor in mathematics, a student must complete at least 30 credits in mathematics at the 200 level or higher, with at least 15 upper-division mathematics credits; Statistical Methods I (MATH 425) cannot be used toward the upper-division requirement. A minimum of 15 credits must be taken at the University of Oregon.
Courses used to fulfill the minor requirements must be taken for a letter grade and passed with a grade of C- or better.
One upper-division course used to fulfill the minor requirements may receive a grade of D (D+ or D or D–).
