Usually, no. The exceptions tend to be courses where the offering department has worked with us in development of the course and (at least historically) cross-listed the course. Since the College of Science stopped offering cross-listings between courses within the college, it may be tough to tell which courses can be used. We hope the following notes will help to clarify:
- SIE 440 is an option for the elective course in the SDS major.
- ECOL 480 does count in the math minor, though the cross-listing has not been preserved.
- PHIL/CSC/MATH 401A and 401B do count in the math minor requirements. Since these courses are offered by the Philosophy department (not in the College of Science), the cross-listing has been preserved.
- Either CSC 245 or CSC 473 may be used in the math minor, but not both courses.
- Sorry, though the College of Engineering offers some courses with significant math content, they do not fit the criteria for use in a math minor.
Something to keep in mind: graduate programs and employers who view a student's transcript will expect to see a minimum number of MATH courses for a student earning a math minor. Likewise, students earning the SDS minor should have DATA courses on their transcript.
