Required Courses

To begin this program, it is expected that you will have completed high school mathematics courses equivalent to the prerequisite for Applied Calculus 1 (MATH 161).

*Calculus 1 and 2 (MATH 165, 166) provide better preparation for this minor and open avenues for other science majors and minors. They may be substituted for Applied Calculus 1 and 2 (MATH 161, 162), respectively.
