Liberal Education Program

48 Credits Required

Students must complete a comprehensive three-tiered Liberal Education Program (LEP). View all requirements of the tiers on the Liberal Education Program. Any credits over 48 are counted toward free electives.

While the choice of courses that fulfill the requirements is generally left up to students, some departments require that students select specific courses to complement their major. This major has specific Tier requirements/restrictions for the following:

Tier 1 - Quantitative Reasoning:
MAT 150 - Calculus I (‘C-’ or better)

Writing Requirements (“W-Courses”)

Three W-courses are required. These may not be taken until after a student has passed ENG 112 — Writing Arguments. W-courses may count toward LEP, major, or cognate requirements, as well as free electives. Course sections that meet this requirement are designated by section numbers ending in “W”.

Transfer students who enter with 60 to 89 credits are required to pass two W-courses, while transfer students who enter with 90 credits or more must pass one W-course.


40 Credits Required
In those mathematics courses which the student applies toward the major in mathematics, he/she must have a GPA of 2.0 and, at most, one grade below C-.

MAT 151 — Calculus II (‘C-’ or better)
MAT 245 — Differential Equations
MAT 250 — Foundations of Mathematics: An Introduction (‘C-’ or better)
MAT 252 — Calculus III (‘C-’ or better)
MAT 320 — Probability and Statistics I  
MAT 322 — Numerical Analysis I
MAT 372 — Linear Algebra (‘C-’ or better)
MAT 378 — Discrete Mathematics
MAT 488 — Seminar in Mathematical Modeling
