The Minor in Mathematics is intended for students interested in the logical thinking and problem solving skills that are gained in studying mathematics. This minor provides students with mathematical preparation that may be applied to their major field of study and that may enhance their career preparation.


The minor requires at least 16 credit hours, including the requirements listed below.
  1. Calculus II. One (1) course:
    • MATH-M 212 Calculus II
    • MATH-S 212 Honors Calculus II
  2. Electives. Additional courses selected for the minor must be approved by the director of undergraduate studies, including three (3) courses at the 300–499 level (MATH-M, MATH-T, or MATH-S). In particular, the courses MATH-K 300, MATH-K 305, and MATH-K 310 cannot be selected for the minor.
  3. Minor GPA, Hours, and Minimum Grade Requirements.
    1. At least 9 credit hours in the minor must be completed in courses taken through the Indiana University Bloomington campus or an IU-administered or IU co-sponsored Overseas Study program.
