Core Curriculum Notes
- Precalculus is required for majors in applied physics, biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, radiologic sciences -- radiation therapy track, and rehabilitation sciences.
- Calculus is required for engineering studies students.
- For non-science majors, the two science courses do not have to be in sequence, and one of the science courses may be a non-lab course.
- Science majors must take a lab science sequence and a specified math course; statistics is required for biology majors; calculus I is required for majors in applied physics, chemistry, computer science, and mathematics; calculus II is required for engineering majors.
- Clinical health majors must take a biology, chemistry, or physics sequence; the third course must be statistics. (See Core Area D, Option IIB.)
- If a student who has not yet declared a major is contemplating a science or clinical health major, it is recommended that he or she take the area D for that science or clinical health major.
- The legislative history/constitution requirement can be met by a single course - HIST/POLS 1100.
- A course may be used only once to satisfy a degree requirement in core areas A-E.
