Return to: Majors & Minors The minimum number of credit hours for the major is 27 required credit hours and 14 credit hours of prerequisites. Proficiency requirements are typically fulfilled by completing an additional 13 credit hours.

Minimum Course Prerequisites
Major Writing Requirement
The upperdivision writing requirement may be satisfied in one of the following ways:
 Completion of or with a grade of C or better, or
 Completion of and , which requires the writing of an Honors thesis.
Major Computing Requirement
Proficiency in a highlevel programming language and fundamental concepts in data structures at the level of CSCI 141 and CSCI 241 is required. This is normally done by taking and passing these courses.
Major Mathematics Requirement
Proficiency in linear algebra and multivariable calculus at the level of MATH 211 and MATH 212 or MATH 213 is required. This is normally done by taking and passing these courses.
Mathematical Modeling Requirement (2 courses)
At most, one course from:
Statistics and Data Analysis Electives (2 courses)
Computational Elective (1 course)
Biology Electives (any 2 BIOL 300 level or above courses). Examples include:
Applications and Models Electives (2 courses)
Note:
Credit for INTR 495496 Honor, with a faculty advisor approved by one of the Mathematical Biology Track directors, may substitute for any two elective courses, as long as the two courses are not in the same category. In addition, with advisor approval, students may replace one elective requirement with one or more independent study or research credits, which must total 3 credits.
