**Mathematics Minor
**(Minor Code: 17011) (SIMS Code: 776301)

The minor in mathematics consists of a minimum of 20-21 units in mathematics to include:

• 12 upper division units, at least six of which have as prerequisite Mathematics 151;

OR

• Mathematics 252 and nine upper division units in mathematics, at least six of which have as prerequisite Mathematics 151.

At most 3 units may be selected from Mathematics 303 and 510. Electives exclude Mathematics 302, 311, 312, 313, 315, 413, 414, 509. The courses selected will be subject to the approval of the minor adviser.

Courses in the minor may not be counted toward the major, but may be used to satisfy preparation for the major and general education requirements, if applicable. A minimum of six upper division units must be completed in residence at San Diego State University.

**Statistics Minor
**(Minor Code: 17021) (SIMS Code: 776369)

The minor in statistics consists of a minimum of 15 units in statistics to include Statistics 250 (or equivalent), 350A, 350B or 510, and six units of upper division electives in statistics. For Statistics 550 and 551A, students must satisfy lower division calculus and linear algebra prerequisites (Mathematics 151, 252, and 254 as appropriate).

The minor program includes a combination of courses in applied statistical methods, computer-oriented data analysis, probability, and mathematical statistics, which can be tailored to the student’s major, academic, or professional interests. For example, business students interested in actuarial science may wish to consider a minor comprising Statistics 350A, 350B, 551A, and 551B. Students in the social, behavioral, and natural sciences who are particularly interested in applications and data analysis may wish to consider a minor comprising Statistics 350A, 350B, 510, and 520.

Students considering a minor in statistics are encouraged to consult with their major adviser and with the minor adviser in statistics. Courses in the minor may not be counted toward the major, but may be used to satisfy preparation for the major and general education requirements, if applicable. A minimum of six upper division units must be completed at San Diego State University.

*Note: All Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science programs which require Math 150, Calculus 1, require competency in the prerequisites as noted on the class schedule.*
