Minor Offerings

Based on their interest, students from all disciplines at Habib University have the opportunity to pursue minor in Mathematics and Physics.

Physics Minor:

This Physics minor is designed to open the opportunity for students with a significant interest in Physics to deepen their understanding of the subject. This will provide a foundation for a broader range of technical fields enhancing their ability to keep abreast of an ever-changing technological world.

  1. Students can obtain a minor in Physics by satisfying the following requirements:
    Core Courses Credit Hours
    Mechanics 3
    E&M 3
    Modern Physics 3
    Quantum Mechanics I 3
    Mechanics Lab 1
    Advanced Physics Lab 1
  2. Students must earn a C grade or better in all core courses to continue with the Minor.
  3. Students are required to take a minimum of three additional 300+ level courses.
  4. Students must earn a minimum of 20 credits.

Mathematics Minor:

The Mathematics minor at Habib University offers an opportunity to students from all disciplines with a significant interest in Mathematics to deepen their understanding of the subject. This optional field of study is designed to provide a foundation in Calculus, Linear Algebra and basic modelling techniques using differential equations. Convergent thinking is also developed through the analysis of quantitative problems directed towards the right procedure for the right outcomes.

The choice of courses available within the minor allows the students to either take a pure mathematics track, an applied mathematics track or a mix of the two.

Students can obtain a minor in mathematics by satisfying the following requirements:

  1. Students must take all the courses specified in the required curriculum (Core Courses) for the Math minor. The required curriculum for Minor includes the following courses:
    Core Courses Credit Hours Pre-requisites
    Calculus II 3 Calculus I
    Differential Equations 3 Calculus II
    Linear Algebra 3 None
    Probability and Statistics 3 None
  2. Students must earn a C grade or better in all Kernel courses to continue with the Minor.
  3. Students, besides the Kernel courses, are required to take a minimum of two 300+ level courses.
  4. Students must earn a minimum of 20 credits.
    Note: Math 0xx level courses cannot be taken to satisfy the minor. Additionally, if Math 101 is a requirement of the student’s major, then it can’t be counted towards the Minor.

Students are free to choose these courses either from Pure Mathematics or Applied Mathematics or both. Depending on the availability of the faculty, variety of courses can be offered within Pure and Applied Mathematics.
