  • Arrows indicate prerequisites. Prerequisites must be satisfied with a grade of C or as indicated.
  • Students may place into Math 140, 203, 215, 241, 251A by taking the Assessment Exam, see: placement or based on a sufficiently high Calculus AP or Math SAT or ACT score. For details see http://math.hawaii.edu/home/pdf/Exceptions.pdf
  • An interview with the associate chair is required to enter the honors sequence.

Academic Minor in Mathematics

Math Minor Requirements (in general):

  • MATH 243 or 253A
  • 12 credit hours in mathematics courses numbered above 300, including:
    • 3 credit hours in a writing-intensive mathematics course
    • 6 credit hours in courses numbered above 400

More specific Math Minor requirements:

  • If Math 243 is a requirement for your major but you did not take Math 253A, you must:
    • complete Math 244
    • complete 12  credits in mathematics courses numbered above 300 that include:
      • 3 credit hours in writing-intensive mathematics courses
      • 6 credit hours in courses 400 and above (excluding Math 480)
  • If both Math 243 and Math 244 are requirements for your major, or if you took Math 253A for your major requirement, you must:
    • complete 15 credits in mathematics courses numbered above 300 that include:
      • 3 credit hours in writing-intensive mathematics courses
      • 6 credit hours in courses 400 and above (excluding Math 480)

All required courses must be completed with a grade of “C” or better. Courses used to fulfill core or major requirements cannot be counted for the minor. Exceptions are:

  • Engineering students may count their Engineering mathematics electives and technical elective (if taken in mathematics) and Math 302 and 307 towards a minor in mathematics.
  • BA Physics, BS Physics, and BS Astrophysics students may count their Math 307 or 311 major requirement towards a minor in mathematics.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  • The requirements include work at the senior level and allow the choice of specific courses which best complement work in the student’s major field.
  • Students who are interested in minoring in mathematics are urged to consult a departmental advisor early in their academic career and schedule a Minor Declaration Appointment.
  • Prior to graduation (at least one semester in advance), a Certification of Academic Minor form should be completed in consultation with a departmental advisor.
