Students have demonstrated successful completion of the learning indicators identified for learning outcome 2.1 by meeting the prerequisites for MATH 24004.


Students must complete the State Minimum Core requirements as outlined in the Catalog of Studies. The courses that meet the state minimum core also fulfill many of the university's General Education requirements, although there are additional considerations to satisfy the general education learning outcomes. Students are encouraged to consult with their academic adviser when making course selections. 


Students are required to complete 40 hours of upper-division courses (3000-4000 level).  It is recommended that students consult with their adviser when making course selections.

Data Science Statistics and Computational Analytics Concentration students are advised to select STAT 30133/STAT 30043 to meet the prerequisites required in the concentration.
