Course selections are subject to restrictions.
The following courses cannot be used as Electives:
No more than 60 Math credits can be counted toward the degree.
COMP.1010 (Computing I) or MATH.5760 (Statistical Programming Using SAS) or another computer programming class as approved by the Undergraduate Coordinator or Department Chair.
ENGL.2290 (Essay Writing for Non-English Majors). If a student has completed other courses with substantial writing requirements, he/she can petition to have that work satisfy the mathematics writing requirement. Students with a joint major in Computer Science should take ENGL.2200 (Oral and Written Communication for CS Majors) rather than ENGL.2290.
General Education Electives (at least 6 courses)
Computer Science Minor
Successful completion of an appropriate CS course as a free elective satisfies the requirements for a Minor in Computer Science.
Computer Science Major
Successful completion of appropriate Computer Science Courses as free electives will satisfy the requirements for a Major in Computer Science. CS majors must take a course in Ethics in Computer Science.
Advice to Students
Any deviations from this sample program of study require permission of the Mathematics Undergraduate Coordinator or Department Chair. To receive written permission, use an Academic Petition form and keep a copy for your own files.
Bachelor of Science Requirements
A minimum of 74 credits and 20 courses from the offerings of science and mathematics; four science lecture courses with co-requisite labs, including a two semester sequence in a department other than Mathematics—COMP.1010 (Computing I), COMP.1020 (Computing II), MATH.2310/2320 (Calculus III & Math Lab I) and MATH.2360 (Engineering Diff. Eqns) qualify. If you use math courses to fulfill lab science requirements, you will have to take additional science elective courses to satisfy the requirement of 74 science credits. The following courses CANNOT be used to fulfill science requirements: CHEM.1010, CHEM.1110, CHEM.1130, CHEM.1120, CHEM.1140, ATMO.1020, ATMO.1200, ATMO.1410, ENVI.1010, ENVI.1020, ENVI.1150, GEOL.1010, COMP.1110, COMP.1130, COMP.1140, COMP.1150, COMP.2110, PHYS.1210, PHYS.1210, RADI.1010, RADI.1020.
