NOTES:

  1. Math Electives: (15 hours) Take MATH 325, 425 and STAT 414. Of the remaining 6 hours of 4xx, select 2 courses from MATH 405-489 (Math 451 taken after fall 04 only); STAT 407-416; CSCE 211-499 (except CSCE 442); ISEN 420, 421.

  2. ECON/FINC electives: (12 hours) Take ECON 202 or 203 (3 hours). Select 3 courses from ECON 311-489; ECMT 463; FINC 309-489.

  3. CSCE electives: (8 hours) Select 2 courses from CSCE 110, 111, 206 and 211.

  4. Science Electives: (8 hours) Select 2 courses from CHEM 101/111 (or 107) or CHEM 103/113; CHEM 102/112 or CHEM 104/114; BIOL 111; BIOL 112.

For a list of the acceptable ENGL literature, and Visual/Performing Arts courses, please see your catalogue or the Mathematics Department's Undergraduate Weg page at Core Requirements and Course List. The English Literature elective must be chosen from the list of Humanities electives. Students with AP credit for ENGL 241 have satisfied the ENGL 210/301 requirement. In addition, 6 hours of International and Cultural Diversity are required. Some of these courses may be used to satisfy other degree requirements. For a list of these courses, please see your catalogue or the Mathematics Department's webpage at International and Cultural Diversity Requirement.

  6. HIST/POLS: (12 hours) POLS 206 and 207 are required. For the HIST requirement, 6 hours of American History are required. Most students satisfy this requirement by taking HIST 105 and 106. For other options, see your catalogue.

  7. Free electives: (1 hour) Almost every course offered at TAMU will count as a free elective. However, there are some exceptions. Please see an advisor or the Mathematics Department's Undergraduate Web page linkList of Ineligible Free Electives for a list of unacceptable courses. Math170 counts as free elective hours.
