Outcomes Assessment
Each student is required to participate in the department’s Outcomes Assessment procedures as determined by each year's Undergraduate Policy & Curriculum Committee and approved by the Chair.
Acceptable Substitutions
- MATH2405H Mathematics in a Computational Context may be substituted for MATH2114 Introduction to Linear Algebra.
- MATH2405H Mathematics in a Computational Context and MATH2406H Mathematics in a Computational Context (both courses must be taken) may be substituted forMATH2114 Introduction to Linear Algebraand MATH2204 Introduction to Multivariable Calculus and MATH2214 Introduction to Differential Equations.
Foreign Language Requirement
Students who did not successfully complete at least two years of a single foreign, classical, or sign language during high school must successfully complete six credit hours of a single foreign, classical, or sign language at the college level. Courses taken to meet this requirement do not count toward the hours required for graduation. Please consult the Undergraduate Catalog for details.
