The Math minor consists of 6 Math courses at or above Math 51 taken for a letter grade. Within the 6 Math courses, minors must complete at least 3 100-level Math courses.

**Note**: The CR/NC policy from the 2020-21 academic year does not extend beyond Summer 2021. From Autumn 2021 onwards all courses towards the Math major must be taken for a letter grade.

### How courses can be counted

##
Out of Department Courses as 100-level Math Courses

The following courses can be used toward the 100-level Math course requirement:

- Stats 116 (no longer offered)
- Stats 118 or 200 (at most one, but not both, and neither if Stats 116 is being used)
- Phil 151
- Phil 152
- Math 56

No other courses outside of the Math Department can count in this way. There are **no exceptions** to this for any reason.

##
Intro Seminar Courses

Math IntroSem courses can be used toward the 100-level Math course requirement. Examples include:

- Math 77Q
- Math 87Q
- Math 83N

##
