# Laboratory Science/Mathematics/Statistics/Computing

**Curricular Outcome:** Ability to think and function as a scientist

College of Science students will complement critical thinking and analytical abilities gained within their major area of study by completing a two-course sequence and related laboratory experience in a science outside of their major. Students are also required to develop proficiency and knowledge in the areas of mathematics, statistics, and computer science.
### Laboratory Science

The laboratory science requirement is met by completion of a one-year sequence of laboratory science.

**List of Approved Lab Science Courses**

### Mathematics

The Mathematics requirement is met by completion of a one-year sequence of single variable calculus. The following sequences are approved to meet the math requirement:
