Cognitive Skills and Processes: Quantitative and Formal Reasoning [QQ], [QR] (6 credits)

cognitiveStudents must take two degree credit-bearing courses and meet both of these goals.

  • Formulate, evaluate, and communicate conclusions and inferences from quantitative information. (includes various quantitative methods courses as well as 640 courses). [QQ]
  • Apply effective and efficient mathematical or other formal processes to reason and to solve problems. (includes 640 courses and formal reasoning courses). [QR]

Transfer credits from courses taken in high school will not generally meet these requirements.

SAS Core courses taught each semester are available to view in the Schedule of Classes. After selecting a semester, New Brunswick, and Undergraduate and hitting "Continue", choose the tab on the left labeled "Core Code". The dropdown list will show each of the SAS Core codes. After selecting one of the options, courses will appear from all departments that fulfill that SAS Core goal.
