Notes:

¹ Students who complete MAT 143, precalculus algebra, may use these 4 credits in the general elective category. The mathematics requirement is fulfilled by completion of either MAT 161 and MAT 162, or MAT 151 and MAT 161.

² The laboratory science sequence must be chosen from one of the disciplines listed below. Choose only one sequence from any particular discipline. The courses which constitute acceptable sequences within each discipline are indicated.

3Applicable English courses are ENG 121 and all ENG courses numbered 200 or above. Modern language can be used to fulfill this requirement. Modern language literature in translation or civilization courses are not applicable.
4 Mathematics/Science elective must be chosen from outside the discipline selected for the laboratory science sequence and must be selected from the following:

  • MAT Courses numbered 151 or higher.
  • Biology: BIO: Courses numbered 131 or higher
  • Chemistry: CHE: 171, 172, 203, 204, 205, 206
  • Geology: GEO: 105, 105L, 106, 106L, 151, 152 and courses numbered 200 or higher.
  • Physics PHY: 103, 104, 105 and courses numbered 200 or higher. (Degree credit cannot be awarded for both PHY 103 and PHY 105 .)
  • Science - Physical Science: SCI: 100, 100L, 103, 103L.

5 See your advisor for appropriate electives. Mathematics courses used as general electives must be chosen from MAT 112, 113, 121, 122 and any MAT course numbered 140 and higher.
