The graduation requirements are listed below. In addition, students select free electives to reach 120 credits overall required for the degree.  The department website provides an overview of the program, admission requirements for the major (when applicable), faculty biographies, learning outcomes, and careers:


All bachelor’s degree programs include liberal education (LEP) and writing (W) course requirements. To review more detailed information, please visit General Education (LEP) Degree Requirements.   


(*) When up to three courses in the major/cognate may also satisfy LEP requirements, they are recommended below; only two courses within Explorations (T2) may be fulfilled by courses in the same subject.  

In those mathematics courses which the student applies toward the major in mathematics, they must have a GPA of 2.0 and, at most, one grade below 'C-'.
