College of Arts and Sciences

Enhance your degree with the fundamental concepts of mathematics! Undergraduate students can earn a minor in mathematics by completing a sequence of six courses approved by the Department of Mathematical Sciences. See the IPFW Bulletin for details, including the current requirements for a math minor and some sample programs. Your academic advisor can help you select courses that align with your program.

To be considered for a mathematics minor, complete the application form and return it directly to the department's Program Review Committee Chair, Professor S. Akkari, in his mailbox in Kettler 200. The form may be printed, or picked up in the Kettler 200 office.
