Mathematics Minor

Matriculated undergraduate students majoring in another department or in another school or college within the University may elect to minor in mathematics. This minor is designed by the department to give students a solid foundation in mathematics as well as some experience in the discipline at an advanced level.


  • at least 15 credits of 2000+ level MATH courses as specified by the department (see Tracks below)
  • a grade of a C (2.0) or better  in each of the required courses for the minor
  • equivalent transfer credits can be used to satisfy minor requirements
  • a Pass-Fail course may may not be used to satisfy minor requirements
  • substitutions from the department’s stated requirements are not permitted

Catalog Year 2022-2023 and After

Track 1:

  • Both MATH 2110Q and 2210Q
  • One (1) from either MATH 2410Q, 2620, or 2710
  • At least two (2) distinct MATH courses at the 3000-level or above. Each of these courses must be for three (3) or more credits.

Track 2*:
Advanced Calculus Sequence: MATH 2141Q, 2142Q, 2143Q, 2144Q.


Catalog Year 2021-2022 and Before

(Students who matriculated to UConn during Catalog Year 2021-2022 or earlier can opt to be grandfathered into this old plan of study)

Track 1:
Five courses from List A below.

Track 2:
Five courses from Lists A and B below, with at least two courses coming from List B.
Note that all the courses in List B (except MATH 2710 or 2142) have a prerequisite of a grade of C (2.0) or better in 2710 or 2142.

Track 3*:
Advanced Calculus Sequence: MATH 2141Q, 2142Q, 2143Q, 2144Q.

List A:
MATH 2110Q (or 2130Q or 2143Q), 2210Q, 2410Q (or 2420Q), 3146, 3160, 3170 (or STAT 3965), 3265, 3410, 3435, 3510, 3511, 3710 (or 3710W), or certain sections of 3094, 3795, or 3799 approved by the department head.

List B:
MATH 2710 (or 2142 or 2710W), 3150 (or 4110), 3151, 3210, 3230 (or 4210), 3231, 3240, 3260, 3330 (or 4310), 3370.


*NOTE: As of Spring 2023, the Advanced Calculus courses are no longer being offered. The Advanced Calculus Sequence track was a rigorous and proof-oriented challenging sequence in single and multivariable calculus aimed at highly motivated entering first-year students with strong backgrounds for students outstanding math skills. Some accommodations will be made for those who started in the MATH 2141-2144 track and need to change to another track. Please contact the department for more information as indicated below.

Math 2000-Level Course Prerequisites

The prerequisite for Math 2000-level courses is MATH 1132Q (Calculus II). For this reason, students intending to minor in mathematics, not using the Advanced MATH 2141Q-2144 track, should take MATH 1132Q as early in their career as possible.

Application Process

To apply for the Math Minor, please go to and request the change be made to your program/plan.

When you near graduation, please keep in mind that you must apply for graduation before you can submit your Final Plan of Study for approval.
