Two courses, each degree credit-bearing and worth at least 3 credits, consisting of one course in Mathematics (640) or Formal Reasoning; and one additional course in Mathematics, Computer Science (198), Operations Research (711), Statistics (960), or a discipline specific course strongly emphasizing either analytic or quantitative methods.
The following lists consist of quantitative courses which are pathways to further quantitative work. Upper-level quantitative courses in these subject areas provide additional opportunities to deepen the analytic understanding emphasized here.
Students who place into calculus on the mathematics placement exam are exempt from taking the 640 course, and for such students, the requirement becomes a one-course quantitative reasoning course requirement. Students who use calculus placement to satisfy the mathematics requirement may not use precalculus to satisfy the second part of this requirement. Transfer credits from courses taken in high school will not generally satisfy this requirement.
1st Quantitative Reasoning Requirement
The first part of the quantitative reasoning requirement can be fulfilled by a mathematics course or a formal reasoning course. The lists of each are below:

Advanced upper-level courses whose prerequisites fulfill this requirement are not listed. In the unusual case that a student receives special permission to register for, and successfully completes, such an upper-level course without having received credit for the prerequisite courses, the upper-level course will be accepted in lieu of the prerequisite course. Such students should see an academic advisor to have this noted correctly in their records.
