In addition to the preliminary and extra-disciplinary requirements described above, the student must earn credit for the following courses, with a grade average of at least 2.0.

- Differential Equations sequence: MAT 414 and MAT 517.
- Numerical Methods course: MAT 581.
- First course in each of the sequences in Table 1.
- Second course in one of the sequences in Table 1.

Sequence | First course | Second course |
