Mathematical Sciences Minor


Students wishing to minor in Mathematical Sciences should select an academic advisor from among the Mathematical Sciences faculty who will help ensure that all requirements for the minor are met. 

To earn a minor in Mathematical Sciences, students must complete a minimum of 24 semester hours, at least 12 hours of which must be upper-division course work taken at UIS. Transfer credit for lower-division course work and for upper-division mathematics courses is evaluated on a case-by-case basis through a Student Petition. Upon completing the core course requirements, students must then select an area of specialization (mathematics, operations research, or statistics) and complete 12 semester hours as detailed below.
