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.
