Notes:

  1. Students must take courses from the approved University Core Curriculum list as follows: 6 hours in Communication (must take ENGL 104 and one of COMM 203, COMM 205, or COMM 243); 3 hours in Language, Philosophy, and Culture; 3 hours in Creative Arts; 3 hours in Social and Behavioral Sciences; 6 hours in Government / Political Science (must take POLS 206 and POLS 207); and 6 hours in American History. In addition, 6 hours of courses must be in the area of International and Cultural Diversity.  These may be in addition to University Core Curriculum courses, or if a course in this category satisfies an area of the Core, it can be used to meet both requirements.
  2. Not applicable.
  3. Not applicable.
  4. In addition to the University Core Curriculum electives, students must take at least 4 hours in an elective area.
  5. Students must take one course from the following courses: MATH 220, MATH 302, MATH 308, MATH 409, MATH 410, MATH 417 or MATH 437, MATH 442, MATH 446, MATH 447, MATH 469, ISEN 320, ISEN 340, ISEN 355. One additional course must be taken from the preceding list or the following list: STAT 407, STAT 426, STAT 438, STAT 445, STAT 459, STAT 485, STAT 489, STAT 491, ISEN 350. The student must take a total of at least 6 hours of mathematics and statistics elective courses.
  6. Not applicable.
  7. Not applicable.

If a grade of D or F is earned in any of MATH 151/MATH 171, MATH 152/MATH 172, MATH 221/MATH 251/MATH 253, MATH 220, MATH 304/MATH 323, STAT 211, or STAT 212, this course must be immediately retaken and a grade of C or better earned. The department will allow at most two D’s in upper-level (325-499) courses. If a third D is earned, one of the three courses in which a D was earned must be retaken and a grade of C or better earned.
