Laboratory Science/Mathematics/Statistics/Computing

Curricular Outcome: Ability to think and function as a scientist

College of Science students will complement critical thinking and analytical abilities gained within their major area of study by completing a two-course sequence and related laboratory experience in a science outside of their major. Students are also required to develop proficiency and knowledge in the areas of mathematics, statistics, and computer science.

Laboratory Science

The laboratory science requirement is met by completion of a one-year sequence of laboratory science.
