**Electives 6-10Total Credit Hours 120**

*GE 23 number of credits is 33. However, required courses outside of major, such as MAT 126 or MAT 161 satisfy Mathematics and Quantitative Reasoning in GE 23; CHE 111 or PHY 107/111 satisfy Natural Science and Scientific Reasoning in GE 23. Therefore, the number of remaining credits in GE 23 required by the program is (33 – 6) = 27 cr. [In GE 23 courses for each category are counted as 3 credits each. Therefore, the total number deducted is 6 credits].

**MAT 202 for Track 1 and MAT 315 for Track 2 are preferred courses. Other mathematics courses such as Calculus III (MAT 263) , or Discrete Mathematics (MAT 270) may be suggested by program advisement to better meet student’s career choices.
