Mathematics Minor Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete a minor in Mathematics are expected to:
- Achieve mastery of a diverse collection of mathematical ideas, including the ideas of calculus;
- Communicate mathematics both orally and in writing;
- Think analytically and critically to create mathematical models of real world problems, analyze them, and interpret the analysis.
The Mathematics Minor
The minor in Mathematics requires at least 20 semester credit hours of Mathematics at the 170 level or higher. At least four semester hours must include a course numbered 300 or above. FSMAT 201 may be counted toward the minor in Mathematics. CMPSC 230 (cross-listed as MATH 310) may be counted toward the minor in Mathematics. A student who elects to include this course in the Mathematics minor program may not also count it within a major or minor in Computer Science.
All Mathematics courses taken at Allegheny having a number higher than 159 must be taken on a letter-grade basis and are included in the GPA calculation for the minor. In the case of repeated courses, only the most recent grade is included.
