**Mission Statement**

The mission of the Mathematics program is to prepare
students:

- to enter the workforces in a mathematics-related position;
- to enter graduate programs in mathematics; or
- to teach secondary mathematics content (upon completion of
teacher certification requirements).

**Graduation Requirements**

Some courses taken for the minor may simultaneously fulfill
general education requirements. Please see the Graduation
Requirements (bachelor's degrees) section of this catalog for
information on the general education program.

Students should note that the minor contributes between 9 and 13
hours toward the required 39 hours of 3000-4000 level
coursework.

Program Requirements: 30-33 hours

Along with the general education program and a major, students
must complete the minor's prerequisite and core requirements and
must select program electives as indicated.
