Course Prerequisites

The Department strictly enforces all course prerequisites. Prerequisite courses cannot be taken concurrently with or after the course—they must be taken before the course. Students who take a course out of sequence (before or concurrently with its prerequisites) will not be allowed to count those credits towards the completion of their major, and consequently will be required to take an additional course to replace those credits.  For placement in the calculus sequence, please consult the Math department’s section of the Bulletin.

The prerequisites for courses are as follows:
