A student must successfully complete 36 credits in mathematics at the Calculus level or above. Calculus I, II, III, Linear Algebra, Mathematical Problem Solving, Foundations of Mathematics, Mathematical Analysis, and Introduction to Modern Algebra are required. Of the 36 credits, at least 17 credits must come from the list of advanced courses. Students must successfully complete General Physics I and II and Introduction to Computer Science and Introduction to Programming.

Students must either successfully complete 9 additional credits in Biology, Chemistry, Physics or Computer Science that counts towards the degree in those majors or must successfully complete a major or a minor in any of these areas. If the student chooses the first option, than 6 of the 9 additional credits must come from one of the following sequences:

  1. Mechanics I , Mechanics II, Electromagnetic Theory I, Quantum Physics or Computational Physics
  2. Physical Chemistry I and II
  3. Numerical Methods and Analysis of Algorithms
