Math Minor

Minor Requirements:

Students declare the minor in Axess. Declarations are reviewed about once per month and you will be contacted once your declaration is approved.

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. 

  • Stats 116, Phil 151, Phil 152, and Math 56 can be used as 100-level Math courses towards this requirement.
  • Math introsem courses (such as 77Q, 87Q, and 83N) can be used as 100-level Math courses towards this requirement. 
  • MATH 193, Math 193X, Math 197, Math 198, and Math 199 cannot count towards the minor.

  • Four courses of the minor must be taken at Stanford.
