  • Mathematics Requirement: MATH& 146, MATH& 151, MATH& 152 and MATH & 211.
  • Science Requirement/Electives: 10 credits to be chosen with advising and in line with the student’s expected specialization. One course must be chosen from the physical, natural, or earth sciences, and 5 credits must be from a laboratory course.
  • Communications Requirement: ENGL& 101, and ENGL 235.
  • Pre-Major General Education Requirement: 15 credits. 5-10 credits from the Social Science Distribution, and 5-10 credits from the Humanities Distribution.

Additional requirements:

  • Students must earn a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.00, as calculated by the degree awarding institution.
  • The general education courses will include courses earned at either/both the associate degree and/or applied bachelor’s degree level, based on the total required 180 quarter hours of credit.
