Mathematics Minor

Students who plan to get a minor should declare their intention as a sophomore by filing a Math Minor Application with Dr. Paul Pasles, Mathematics Minor Coordinator, in SAC 324, 610.519.7345.

To receive a math minor certificate, the student must see Dr. Pasles in person prior to the course registration for his/her final semester. Students may consult Dr. Pasles at any time for information and advice. If all requirements are satisfied, the certificate will be issued about two weeks after graduation and it will also appear on the student's transcript.
