Suggested Course Sequence


A suggested course sequence for full-time students follows. All students should consult an advisor.

First Semester


Second Semester


  • MATH 182 - Calculus II 4 semester hours
  • English foundation 3 semester hours (ENGF)
  • Natural sciences distribution with lab 4 semester hours (NSLD)
  • Speech foundation 3 semester hours (SPCF)

Third Semester


Fourth Semester


Note: Apply for the College’s graduation after registering for fourth semester courses.

Total Credit Hours: 60


* ENGL 101 /ENGL 101A , if needed for ENGL 102 /ENGL 103 , or track elective.

** Behavioral and Social Science Distribution (BSSD) courses must come from different disciplines.

Students are strongly encouraged to take two consecutive lab sciences courses.

Students should choose electives carefully based on the requirements of their intended transfer institution. Students are encouraged to take a two-semester sequence of courses that fulfills their transfer goals. Track Electives include: ACCT 221 , ACCT 222 , BIOL 150 , BIOL 151 , BIOL 210 , CHEM 131 , CHEM 132 , CHEM 203 , CHEM 204 , CMSC 203 , CMSC 140 , ECON 201 , ECON 202 , ENGL 101 , ENES 102 , ENES 220 , ENES 221 , ENES 240 , ENEE 140 , PHYS 161 , PHYS 262 , or PHYS 263 . Students must take at least one 200 level track elective.

Program Outcomes


Upon completion of this program a student will be able to:

  • Effectively communicate the concepts of single and multivariable calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra using appropriate mathematical language.
  • Apply mathematical approaches from single and/or multivariable calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra to analyze and solve problems in mathematics and other disciplines.
  • Appropriately use current mathematical software, such as Matlab or MAPLE, for tasks in multivariable calculus, differential equations, and/or linear algebra.
