The undergraduate minor in mathematics emphasizes knowledge and awareness of:
- Calculus of several variables and vector analysis.
- The structure of mathematical proofs and definitions.
- Basic linear algebra and the theory of vector spaces.
- At least one additional specialized area of mathematics.
Declaration of a minor in mathematics is open to any student enrolled at CU Boulder, regardless of college or school.
To earn a minor in mathematics, students must complete the following courses with a grade of C- or better in each course (no pass/fail work may be applied), and they must have at least a C (2.00) average for all attempted work in mathematics. Students are allowed to apply no more than 9 credit hours, including 6 upper-division credit hours, of transfer work toward a minor.
