TOTAL: 120-124.5 CREDITS

1The selection of a First Year Seminar  is likely to fulfill requirements both for the First Year Seminar and a General Education requirement.  Thus, the First Year Seminar will not add to the total credits for the semester.

2Three cognate electives, thus five cognate courses overall.  Students must complete a two course sequence and a three course sequence.  Exactly one sequence must be from Computing Science.  The other sequence can come from Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, or Finance.  All cognate electives must count toward the major of the relevant department.  All related labs also are required.

3Five Math electives overall, selected from Math courses numbered MATH 299 or higher.  A student must choose at least one from MATH 320 , MATH 360 , MATH 410 , or MATH 441 .

4If a student chooses a cognate sequence in Economics or Finance, then two electives must be used to satisfy the General Education Natural Science requirement.
