The Mathematics minor complements and enhances a wide variety of undergraduate majors by providing students with significant mathematical skills and a perspective on the discipline. Students take foundational courses in calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra. For the remaining requirements, students choose courses from a wide array of mathematics electives that can complement any major or field of interest.

About this Program

Department Information

Graduates from the Department of Mathematics might take a job that uses their math major in an area like statistics, biomathematics, operations research, actuarial science, mathematical modeling, cryptography, or mathematics education. Or they might continue into graduate school leading to a research career. Professional schools in business, law, and medicine appreciate mathematics majors because of the analytical and problem solving skills developed in the math courses.

Open to students not majoring in mathematics.

The linear algebra course and three 4000-level electives must be taken from the UF Department of Mathematics; no substitutions from other institutions or departments are allowed.

A prerequisite for admission to the minor is prior completion of one of these 4000-level courses with a minimum grade of C+.

Of the total credits, no more than three may be individual work. Students must complete a minimum of six credits of coursework exclusive to the minor that cannot count toward the major(s) or other minors.
