TOTAL: 121-125.5 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 368 , MATH 410 , or MATH 441 .

4These EPW electives might also satisfy other curricular requirement(s).  When an EPW elective satisfies other curricular requirement(s), an additional free elective will be required.

5If a student chooses a cognate sequence in Economics or Finance, then two electives must be used to satisfy the General Education Natural Science requirement. 

Applied Mathematics majors are required to take the Applied Mathematics Exit Exam in order to graduate.
