Required support courses may be used to satisfy requirements of a minor/second major, thereby reducing the number of hours required. The 18 sh of Math is a complete Math minor; no additional minor is required. PHYS 2425, 2426, and PHYS 332 Digital Logic & Circuitry are half of a Physics minor.


Except MATH 301 Introductory Geometry, MATH 350 Topics in Mathematics for Elementary Teaching I, MATH 351 Topics in Math Elem Tch II, MATH 361 Mathematical Modeling of Science for Middle School I, MATH 362 Mathematical Modeling of Science for Middle School II, MATH 372 Mathematics Structures and Applications, MATH 380 GLB/Mathematics History, MATH 460 Math for Secondary Tch.


BSC 1406 and BSC 1407 at A&M-Commerce are intended for Biology majors only. These courses will satisfy your support course lab science sequence requirement but are not recommended.
