University Requirements: Analytic Reasoning and Natural Sciences (10 credits)

Return to: University Requirements    

Courses must be from the areas of analytic reasoning and natural sciences. At least one mathematics or statistics course and a natural science course with a lab are required.

Analytic Reasoning

Analytic reasoning is the formulation and critique of deductive and inductive arguments, both quantitative and non-quantitative. This reasoning is essential to many intellectual activities, such as critical thinking, creating new knowledge, and applying reason to solving problems. This requirement aims to engage students in mathematics, logic, statistics, or computer science learning experiences. At least one mathematics or statistics course is required.

Natural Science

The Natural Sciences requirement aims to introduce students to the sciences of the physical world, its phenomena, and the laws governing these phenomena. The branches of Natural Sciences-such as astronomy, geosciences, biological sciences, chemistry, physics-deal primarily with matter, energy, and their interrelations and transformations; with living organisms and the principles governing all life forms; and with the physical processes and composition of nature and its products. At least one natural science course with a lab is required.
