Mathematics and Natural Science Correlate Requirements

Students are required to take three major-level laboratory sciences, three major-level math/statistics courses and one additional major-level math/statistics or science course (with advisement). These courses must count towards the respective major requirements.

Approved Science Courses

The following is a partial list of courses that have been approved to meet the Natural Science requirements for the Computer Science major. Additional upper-level courses may also meet the requirement, with advisement.

  • BIO 201 – Foundations of Biological Inquiry (formerly known as BIO 185: Themes in Biology, effective Fall 2016).
  • BIO 211 – Biology of the Eukaryotic Cell
  • BIO 221 – Ecology and Field Biology
  • BIO 231 – Genetics
  • CHE 201 – General Chemistry I
  • CHE 202 – General Chemistry II
  • PHY 120 – Introduction to Geology OR PHY 161 – Introduction to Astronomy OR PHY 171 – Introduction to Meteorology (at most one of these three)
  • PHY 201 – General Physics I
  • PHY 202 – General Physics II
  • PHY 261 – Stellar Astronomy

Math Correlate Requirements

Students are required to take the following math courses:

  • MAT 127 (Calculus A)
  • MAT 128 (Calculus B) or MAT 205 (Linear Algebra)
  • STA 215 (Statistical Inference)

Students must also take one additional math or statistics or science course that counts towards the respective major requirements.

Approved Math Courses

MAT 128 or MAT 205 or courses numbered above 205, i.e. MAT 229 or above, approved for Math or Statistics majors, with advisement.
STA courses numbered above 215, i.e. STA 270 or above, approved for Math or Statistics majors, with advisement.
