NOTES:

  1. Math Electives: (15 hours) Take MATH 325, 425 and STAT 414 or MATH 411. Of the remaining 6 hours of 4xx, select 2 courses from MATH 405-489; 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. ECON 312, 319, 320, 324, and 330 will count towards the International and Cultural Diversity CORE requirement, but note that they ALL have a prerequisite which is not built into the Actuarial Science degree plan.

  3. CSCE electives: (8 hours) Select 2 courses from CSCE 110, 111, 121, and 206.

  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; or ASTR 111.

  5. Core Electives: (18 hours) Take ENGL 104 (3 hours), COMM 203, 205, or 243 (3 hours), a 200-400 level Language, Philosophy and Culture CORE course (3 hours), and 3 hours of a Creative Arts CORE course. For a list of the acceptable Language, Philosophy and Culture and Creative Arts courses, please see your catalog at Undergraduate Catalog Listings. 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 catalog or the Mathematics Department's List of International and Cultural Diversity Requirements.

  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 catalog.

  7. Free electives: (3 hours) 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 List of Ineligible Free Electives for a list of unacceptable courses. Math 170 counts as free elective hours.
