General Education - Area BB: Upper-Division Mathematics or Science


Students will use reasoning skills characteristic of common scientific and mathematical practice to do one or more of the following: to solve problems, to interpret observations, to make predictions, to design experiments for the testing of hypotheses, or to prove theorems. Through a balanced picture of past successes and current uncertainties in science or mathematics, they will come to understand the cumulative, historical nature of the development of science and mathematics. The specific scientific or mathematical content of these courses can be useful to students, not only as “examples” of scientific or mathematical methods, but as knowledge that can enhance their lives outside the classroom or their studies in other subjects.

Check the Class Schedule or Degree Planner for the most up-to-date list of courses satisfying this requirement.

A major in the natural sciences (Applied Physics, Biological Sciences, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, and Mathematics) may satisfy the BB requirement by taking any course offered in a natural science discipline (Applied Physics, Biological Sciences, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, and Mathematics). Students should consult their academic advisors before choosing such a course. This provision applies retroactively to all CSUSM majors in the natural sciences.
