General Education Requirements
All students are required to satisfy the General Education Requirements (GER). All GER courses should be selected in consultation with a faculty advisor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Refer to the General Education Requirements section of this catalog for further information on electives.
Co-op Courses
In Mathematical Sciences, the co-op courses, MATH 310 Co-op Work Experience I and MATH 410 Co-op Work Experience II, bear degree credit and count as technical or free electives, subject to approval by a faculty advisor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
Electives
All mathematics, technical, and free electives should be selected after consultation with a faculty advisor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Any mathematics course numbered 331 or above may be used as a mathematics elective. Any course at or above the 100 level having a significant mathematical and/or scientific content may be used as a technical elective. Any course at or above the 100 level may be used as a free elective.
Application Electives
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 are encouraged to consider the double major program.
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.
