A minor in
mathematics requires a minimum of 18 semester hours in
mathematics. At least 9 hours must be at the
300/400 level in mathematics. At least one-third
of the course requirements in each major and minor
must be earned at WKU. You must have a GPA of at
least 2.0 in the minor courses and in the minor
courses completed at WKU.

(i) Required courses: MATH 136 (4 hrs), MATH 137 (4 hrs), MATH 307 (3 hrs) – 11 hours total

Students majoring in engineering may replace MATH 307 with MATH 350.

(i) Required courses: MATH 136 (4 hrs), MATH 137 (4 hrs), MATH 307 (3 hrs) – 11 hours total

Students majoring in engineering may replace MATH 307 with MATH 350.

(ii) The
student must take two courses from MATH 237 (4 hrs),
305, 310, 317, 331, 382, STAT 301, but the student
may not count both MATH 382 and STAT 301 toward the
math minor.

Note: The
number of courses taken and actual hours earned will
depend on whether or not the student completes MATH
237 (Multivariable Calculus).

Case
I – The student completes MATH 237:

Then the student
will have MATH 136, 137, 237, and MATH 307 (15 hrs
total). The student will still need 6 more
hours of 300/400 level mathematics which requires
two more 3 hour courses. Therefore, the
student will complete a total of 6 courses for 21
hours.

Case
II – The student does not complete MATH 237:

Then the student
will have MATH 136, 137, and MATH 307 (11 hrs
total). The student will still need 6 more
hours of 300/400 level mathematics, which brings the
total to 17 hours. To earn the additional
required hour, the student must take another 3-hour
math class to make a total of 6 courses for 20
hours.
