General Mathematics is a Liberal Arts program designed to provide a solid foundation in mathematics with the flexibility to explore and develop expertise in other academic fields. Because of its flexibility, this concentration is well suited for students who want to combine mathematics with such fields as business, law, computer science, or statistics.

## Effective Spring 2017

**A minimum grade of C is required in all mathematics, statistics, and computer science courses which are required for graduation.**

__Distinctive Requirements for Degree Program__:

**TO PREPARE FOR FIRST SEMESTER:** The curriculum for the Mathematics major, General Mathematics Concentration assumes students enter prepared to take calculus. Entering students who are not prepared to take calculus will need to fulfill pre-calculus requirements in the first semester. Those pre-calculus requirements are listed as benchmark courses in Freshman Semester 1 below. A minimum grade of C is required in all Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science courses which are required by the major.
