The Department of Mathematics offers a minor in Mathematics for students majoring in other disciplines.  The goal of the minor in Mathematics is to provide the student with significant mathematical skills and a perspective on the discipline.

The requirements for the minor include at least 22 credits beyond first-year calculus and are outlined below:

MATH241 or MATH340 4
MATH240 or MATH461 or MATH341 3 or 4
MATH310 (unless exempted) 3
At least one theoretical course from: MATH403, 405, 410  3
At least one algebra course from: MATH401, 402, 403, 405, 406  3
At least one analysis course from: MATH410, 414, 462, 463, 464  3
At least one probability course from: STAT400 or STAT410  3
Note:  If additional credits are needed in order to fulfill the 22-credit minimum, any 400-level MATH-STAT-AMSC courses except MATH 400, MATH 477-478, 480-484, 489, 498, and STAT 464 are acceptable.

Other issues related to the minor in Mathematics:

  • The minor in Mathematics is NOT open to Mathematics majors.
  • The student will need to achieve at least a "C-" (2.0) in each course to be applied to the minor in Mathematics.
  • No more than one of the 400-level courses for the minor in Mathematics may be taken at an institution other than the University of Maryland, College Park.

The departmental advisor for this program is Ida Chan, Undergraduate Mathematics Advisor (ichan@math.umd.edu).
