Students must earn a C- or better in this course.
Readiness for MAT 120 is determined by the math placement test taken online after admission. Students may need to take developmental coursework prior to MAT 120. The MAT 120 requirement may be waived by credit already earned for advanced math coursework or by passing a dedicated proficiency exam. Students who complete MAT 120 and both a Computational Reasoning and Statistical Reasoning course in the Math and Computing Domain take one less Learning Domain course. Students may not apply the course reduction to any Domain where only one course is required, and cannot be applied to the SI Domain.
All students pursuing a Public Policy major are eligible to complete the PPS capstone. A student whose only major is in Public Policy is required to complete the Public Policy Capstone. A student who is double majoring (or pursuing dual degrees) with Public Policy as the primary major (or primary degree) may substitute the Capstone of the secondary major or degree and complete a 300-level PPS course to ensure enough PPS credit hours are met. A Public Policy major in the University Honors Program is required to take the University Honors Capstone, and may take the Public Policy capstone as a 300-level PPS course if they wish to complete a 300-level PPS course to ensure enough PPS credit hours are met.
Courses offered in the student's primary major cannot be taken to fulfill LSP Domain requirements. If students double major, LSP Domain courses may double count for both LSP credit and the second major. Students who choose to take an experiential learning course offered by the major may count it either as a general elective or the Experiential Learning requirement.
In meeting learning domain requirements, no more than one course that is outside the student’s major and is cross-listed with a course within the student’s major, can be applied to count for LSP domain credit. This policy does not apply to those who are pursuing a double major or earning BFA or BM degrees.
