Business students who have an exceptionally strong background in calculus, including calculus of trig functions, may be permitted by the chair to substitute MAT 135 and MAT 136 for MAT 150.

In general, mathematics students cannot earn a minor in the same academic program as their major.  A minor in Mathematics, however, can be earned if the student's major is one of the following:

  • BS Actuarial Science
  • BA Data Science
  • BA/BS Mathematics, with a concentration in Statistics
