Minor or double major in Math or another science

Some 20% of our majors graduate with a minor or double major in math or another science. To minor in math, one also needs to take Math 250B, a gateway course to all upper-division math courses, and then three additional upper division math courses. Popular examples are advanced calculus Math 306, ordinary differential equations Math 310, and linear algebra Math 307. For students who complete a minor or second major, the department will reduce the number of required physics electives from 14 to 12.
