Mathematical science students are encouraged to take CS 120 and PHYC 120. PHYC 120 satisfies the TIER 1 natural science requirement in the University Core Curriculum. Students are strongly advised to deepen their understanding of aspects of the program by selecting additional courses in areas such as business, computer science, finance, economics, or physics. By selecting additional courses appropriately, a student can earn a related minor in computer science, physics, or foundations of business for actuarial science and mathematics majors.
