The requirements for a student in another graduate field to obtain a graduate minor in mathematics are as follows:

**Master's Degree:**: To obtain a minor in mathematics, a master's degree student in another field must take nine hours of graduate credit in mathematics, with at least three hours credit in mathematics courses numbered above 7000.**Ph.D. Degree:**To obtain a minor in mathematics, a Ph,D. student in another field must take twelve hours of graduate credit in mathematics, with at least six hours credit in mathematics courses numbered above 7000.

Note: Math 4005 does not count towards graduate credit for a mathematics minor.

The following is a list of some possible sequences of courses to be followed by Ph.D. minors in mathematics. The list is not inclusive, but it is simply intended to be a guideline for potential minor professors to use in advising students.

**Algebra emphasis:**4200, 4023, 4153, 7210, 7211, or 7410**Discrete Math emphasis:**4171, 4172, 7210, 7410

or alternatively: 4200, 4023, 4470, 7210, 7410**Traditional Applied Math emphasis:**4031, 7320, another 7000-level class, and one of 4032, 4035, 4036, 4055, 4065, 4340, 4345

*Students seeking a minor in mathematics are encouraged to consult as early as possible with the Mathematics Department, so as to obtain advice regarding prerequisites for desired courses. You may use the Graduate Program Contact link in the top left margin.* **Please take note that prerequisites in mathematics courses are serious and failure to observe prerequisites can result in very poor grades. Always check the Department's listing of current graduate courses to find the up-to-date prerequisites.**
