## Minor and Cluster Requirements

The Department of Mathematics offers a minor in mathematics and eight clusters.

### Minor Requirements

Students looking to complete the minor in mathematics must complete the foundational course requirement and advanced course requirement below.

#### Foundational Course Requirement

The following foundational courses must be completed before acceptance into the minor:

- MATH 161: Calculus IA
- MATH 162: Calculus IIA
- MATH 165: Linear Algebra with Differential Equations
- One of the following:
- MATH 150: Discrete Mathematics
- MATH 164: Multidimensional Calculus

Equivalent courses can be substituted for the requirements above:

- MATH 163 for MATH 165
- MATH 171, 172, and 174 for the equivalent MATH 161, 162, and 164
- MATH 173 for MATH 165
- MATH 141-143 for MATH 161-162

Credit granted for AP courses may be used to satisfy foundational requirements.

Math 150A may not be used to satisfy foundational requirements.

#### Advanced Course Requirement for Minor

Students must complete three advanced courses as follows:

- MATH 235: Linear Algebra*
- Two 4-credit advanced mathematics courses**

* The requirement that MATH 235 be taken can also be satisfied by completing MATH 173.

** Any mathematics course numbered 200 or above (except MATH 235) qualifies as an advanced mathematics course.

### Clusters

The department offers several mathematical clusters, all in the natural science and engineering academic division. Most reasonable choices of 3 math courses will qualify for a cluster. For specific information see the cluster search engine.
