Mathematical Sciences Minor

To earn a minor in Mathematical Sciences, students must complete a minimum of 24 semester hours, at least 12 hours of which must be upper-division course work taken at UIS. Transfer credit for lower-division course work and for upper-division mathematics courses is evaluated on a case-by-case basis through the Student Petition process. Upon completing the core course requirements, students must then select an area of specialization (mathematics, operations research, or statistics) and complete 12 semester hours as detailed below.

Core Courses
MAT 115 Calculus I 4
MAT 116 Calculus II 4
MAT 332 Linear Algebra 4
Select from one of the following three specializations: 12
