Majors and Math Requirements


Many college majors require math beyond what you learn in high school.  To make good progress in college, you need to be ready for the recommended first course in your major.  Being ready in math is also an important part of being ready in science, engineering, nursing, computer science, and statistics, or even in the economics you’ll need for business. Math matters in lots of majors. 


You can use the links below to look at various majors and see what first-semester college math course you would need to be ready to take.  You can also see what math topics you’ll need to have mastered in high school in order to succeed in that first college math course.
