The aim of our mathematics degree programs is to provide students with a core knowledge of mathematics essential to the understanding of science and other disciplines. Students should gain substantial problem solving and critical reasoning skills and should develop an understanding of the conceptual underpinnings of mathematics. The knowledge gained through these programs should provide the necessary background in mathematics for those students planning to go on to graduate study in mathematics and related fields. This knowledge should also prepare those students who will be immediately entering careers in science, business, education or other fields which are increasingly making use of mathematics.

Minor in Mathematics

* A student seeking a minor in mathematics must have credit in  a calculus sequence :  MTH 161 - MTH 162  or  MTH 171 - MTH 172 . ** All three courses must be taken in the Department of Mathematics, University of Miami. *** It is possible to select certain 500 level mathematics courses among the three, with prior approval of the Mathematics Department. **** A grade of C- or better is required for each of these three courses and the quality point average for the three courses must be 2.5 or above; and in case the quality point average is below 2.5, an additional mathematics course must be taken.
