# Mathematical Sciences

**Requirement (6 credit hours)**

- A total of six credit hours from the university approved GEP Mathematical Sciences course list.
- At least one course
**must have an MA or ST prefix**.

**Double-counting**

- A course taken to satisfy a Major requirement may also satisfy this requirement if the course is on the approved GEP Mathematical Sciences course list.
- A course that satisfies the Mathematical Sciences requirement may also satisfy the Global Knowledge or U.S. Diversity co-requisite if the course also exists on either university approved GEP co-requisite course list.

**Rationale**

A logical approach to problem solving is important for successful functioning in society. It is also important that students be able to formulate models, be critical consumers of quantitative information, communicate mathematically and solve problems.

**Category Objectives**

Each course in Mathematical Sciences will provide instruction and guidance that help students to:

- improve and refine mathematical problem-solving abilities; and
- develop logical reasoning skills.
