# Mathematics Minor

For information, contact the Department of Mathematics, 123 Bachelor Hall, 513-529-5818.

This minor provides students with an increased understanding of, and competence in, mathematics. Building on a base of calculus and linear algebra, already required for many majors, the program leads students through an introductory proof course, a theoretical course, and an applications course.

A minimum 2.00 GPA is required for all courses in the minor. All courses must be taken for a grade, not credit/no-credit. This minor is not available to majors in mathematics, mathematics and statistics, or mathematics education.

**Note:** You may count at most one semester hour from MTH 430 or MTH 477 and three semester hours of PHY 483/PHY 583. MTH 330 does not count toward the minor. Students who have taken MTH 245 as a requirement for a major may count one hour of MTH 245 to the 10 hours at the 300 level, and for them, MTH 245 substitutes for MTH 347 in the list of "applications" courses.
