You may earn a minor in mathematics by completing at least six courses in mathematics and statistics. Your selection of courses should be appropriate for your major, and your program for a minor must be approved by the department's Program Review Committee. Two calculus courses must be included. College algebra or trigonometry courses are excluded; one computer science course may be substituted for a mathematics or statistics course. You must have a grade of C or better in all courses included in your minor, and at least half of the credits must be earned as resident credit at IPFW.
