STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) courses are for students planning to major in programs that require calculus.

To meet your GE math requirement, you only need one math course. However, STEM majors are often required to take more math courses. Your placement will determine which course you start with.

You may not need to take all the courses listed below. Your educational goals and major will require specific courses. Please check your Educational Plan or see a counselor to make sure you are taking the courses that best meet your needs.
