A minor is earned in conjunction with a bachelor's degree.
To receive a minor (18 to 24 units) at Northern Arizona University, you must complete a planned group of courses from one or more subject matter areas with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0. At least 12 units of the minor must be unique to that minor and not applied to any other minor.
In addition to University Requirements:
- Complete individual plan requirements.
Please note that students may be able to use some courses to meet more than one requirement. Contact your advisor for details.
No more than 50% of the units used to satisfy minor requirements may be used to satisfy major requirements.
|Minimum Units for Completion||22 - 24|
|Highest Mathematics Required||MAT 316|
Student Learning Outcomes
This plan addresses three general student learning outcomes: breadth and depth of mathematical knowledge, ability to communicate mathematics clearly, and facility with mathematical reasoning. Broad mathematical knowledge implies a basic understanding of the theory and applications of calculus, set theory, algebraic structures, and probability.
Students should be able to communicate effectively and be comfortable collaborating with others on mathematical problems. Mathematical reasoning involves the ability to read and understand formal mathematics, construct rigorous proofs, and solve mathematical problems, as well as an understanding of the context and applications of mathematics, and facility with the use of technology in a mathematical context.
Take the following 22 - 24 units with a Grade of "C" or better in each course:
- MAT 136, MAT 137, MAT 316 (11 units)
- Additional units from MAT or STA courses numbered at the 200-level or above, except MAT 401, and MAT 402 (11-13 units)
Be aware that some courses may have prerequisites that you must also take. For prerequisite information click on the course or see your advisor.
