Twenty-seven semester hours of upper-level math courses are required. The mathematics requirements are similar to those for the B.A. degree, but additional advanced math courses are required. These course requirements may be broadly divided into four components:
Candidates for the B.S. degree must choose their minor from a scientific or technical area, including the following: actuarial science, atmospheric science, biology, bioengineering, chemistry, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer science, economics, electrical engineering, engineering, kinesiology, geology, geophysics, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, microbiology, nuclear engineering, petroleum engineering, physics, sport management, wind energy, or zoology. A minor must include 18 semester hours, 6 of which must be advanced. Courses counted for the minor must be approved by the department supervising the minor.
Additional courses must be taken which, together with the required courses, are sufficient to total 120 semester hours. The inventory of courses that can be used to fulfill various requirements changes every year as some courses are deleted and others added. Students should consult the department’s Director of Undergraduate Programs if they have any questions about a particular course and the general degree requirements.
