Major Requirements
Major and minor requirements in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics vary from time to time. Exact requirements in effect at any given time may be found in the USU online General Catalog. All grades for MATH and STAT courses applied toward a departmental major or minor must be C or better. Major and minor requirements in effect at the beginning of Fall Semester 2011 are given below. College of Science Requirements
Every bachelor’s degree candidate in the College of Science must complete the following coursework or its equivalent: Note:
In some degrees or emphases within degrees, the second semester of calculus may be replaced by STAT 3000 . The substitution will be for specific degree programs, not by student choice. 2. One of the following yearlong sequences. The chosen sequence must be outside the student’s major department.
