Students may substitute MATH 244 Introduction to Probability Theory, with advisor approval; However, MATH 244 Introduction to Probability Theory does not satisfy the prerequisite requirements for either MATH 344 Regression Analysis or MATH 447 Applied Time Series Analysis.  

Notes: Students are required to take 9 credits of application elective courses in a single area of specialization. Possible areas of specialization for application elective courses include: Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics/Finance, Physics, Statistics. Students interested in computer science and physics are encouraged to consider the double major programs. Technical electives are courses in any discipline with substantial mathematical content.

This curriculum represents the maximum number of credits per semester for which a student is advised to register.  A full-time credit load is 12 credits.  First-year students are placed in a curriculum that positions them for success which may result in additional time needed to complete curriculum requirements. Continuing students should consult with their academic advisor to determine the appropriate credit load.
