Requirements

University Core (53 Credits)

Lubin majors are required to complete the Foundation Requirements including MAT 104, and CIS 101 or TS 105. The four courses (13 credits) required as part of the Lubin Foundation Requirement in Quantitative Reasoning are applied to the University Core Areas of Knowledge (AOK) requirement as an In-depth Sequence in Quantitative Reasoning, and MAT 117 satisfies one course in AOK- HSN (AOK5). Therefore, Lubin majors are required to complete only one course from each of the four Areas of Knowledge.
