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.

To complete the minor in Mathematics, you must have at least a 2.00 grade point average (GPA) over the courses in the minor. All courses taken for the minor must be for a grade, not for credit/no-credit. This minor is not available to majors in Mathematics, Mathematics and Statistics, or Integrated Mathematics.
