Additional Requirement
 Minimum grade of C in all science courses (BIOS, CHEM, CSCI, EES, MATH, PHYS, PSYC)
  1. "C" or better required
  2. 6 credits of Math satisfy the general education requirements
  3. Check General Education Courses to confirm courses fulfilling this requirement.
  4. FTA (theatre/dance/film related course), FA or MUS
  5. At least 6 of these credits must not be mathematics courses in the College of Sciences. 6 credits can be engineering courses. 1 less credit is required if the student took CSCI 1581 and CSCI 1583 (rather than CSCI 1205.) The College of Sciences maintains a list of approved science electives. Note that many low level classes are not permitted.
  6. Includes 2 credits of Math listed in general education requirements section
  7. Students not adequately prepared to enter a calculus sequence must take appropriate pre-calculus courses without credit toward graduation. The mathematics department determines placement for mathematics classes.
  8. Foreign language must include a six hour sequence in one language. French, German, or Russian is recommended for students planning graduate studies.
  9. Students interested in graduate studies in mathematics are strongly advised to take Math 4102.
