The minimum number of credit hours for the major is 27 required credit hours and 6 credit hours of prerequisites. Proficiency requirements are typically fulfilled by completing an additional 21 credit hours. The major must include courses from at least three departments, with no more than half of the credit hours coming from any one department. No course can be counted in more than one category.

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 is required. This is normally done by taking and passing CSCI 140 or 141 or DATA 141, and CSCI 241.
Major Mathematics Requirement
Proficiency in single variable calculus, linear algebra and multivariable calculus is required. This is normally done by taking and passing these courses.
Mathematical Modeling Requirement (2 courses)
At most one course from:
and at most one course from:
Statistics and Data Analysis Electives (2 courses)
Computational Elective (1 course)
Biology Electives (2 courses, of at least 3 credits each)
Any two BIOL 300level or above courses, of at least 3 credits each. 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.
