STEM Requirement

Students must take a minimum of 16 credits of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). The following limitations apply*:

  • Students must complete one laboratory science course, including both the lab and the corresponding lecture.
  • Students must complete a minimum of 4 credit hours in mathematics at the 1000-level or higher
  • At least 12 STEM credits must be outside the student’s major field of study.

*Some programs specify all 16 credits; others do not. For example, a computer science course may be required for some departments, but not others. Students should check with their academic advisor for specific requirements.
