    (May not include introductory mathematics and science courses)
  • Science Electives (0-17)

Courses used to satisfy the following requirements may, in some cases, be applied toward the primary or secondary concentrations.

Complete the following courses:

Mathematics, choose option a or b (10):


  1. At least 20 credits of the 95 general science required credits must be from 300- or 400-level classes (see course descriptions ).
