*Fall 2023 courses, instructors, and meeting times are subject to change. Check back, as we will be updating course information regularly.

Honors courses in quantitative literacy focus on honing the ability to reason and solve quantitative problems applicable in various contexts, to create sophisticated arguments supported by quantitative analysis, and to communicate the findings to a broad audience. Remember that…

  • All Honors students are required to complete at least one Honors Quantitative Literacy course.
  • Alternatively, the Honors Quantitative Literacy requirement can be satisfied with MATH 120 (or AP credit for MATH 120).
  • Quantitative Literacy courses count towards the 22 HONS credit requirement.
  • Students may take additional Quantitative Literacy courses as an Honors elective.
  • The prerequisite(s) for Honors Quantitative Literacy courses vary by course.

Prerequisite(s): MATH 116 or MATH 120 or equivalent; or permission of instructor

This course counts towards the College's math/logic general education requirement
