  • The other 3 science credits may be chosen from any 2000-, 3000-, or 4000-level math or science course having one of the following prefixes: BIOL, CHEM, CS, GEO, MATH, STAT, or PHYS.
     

In all instances, a grade of C- or better is required for any math or science course to be applied toward a BS degree.
