I took a closer look at the requirements and 17 units are in math. Of all these courses, my community college has three equivalent courses that will transfer. As you can see from the list, I don't _have_ to take one of the two that will transfer but it will be more productive to do so. I like math but I haven't taken the calculus before. The required math courses are: MATH 142 Discrete Structures I: 3 units MATH 161 Calculus and Analytic Geometry I: 4 units (transferable) MATH 211 Calculus and Analytic Geometry II: 4 units (transferable) MATH 342 Discrete Structures II: 3 units And I have to pick one from this list: MATH 222 Linear Algebra: 3 units (transferable) MATH 231 Differential Equations: 3 units MATH 261 Calculus and Analytic Geometry III: 4 units (transferable) MATH 306 Number Theory: 3 units MATH 316 Graph Theory: 3 units MATH 352 Numerical Analysis: 3 units MATH 406 Combinatorics: 3 units MATH 416 Graph Theory: 3 units MATH 470 Mathematical Modelling: 3 units This is why I asked, because I can take the equivalent courses at my college and have them transfer. I still have plenty of general education courses to finish. I also have to take these core CS courses (41 units) CS 150 Introduction to Programming: 4 units (transferable) CS 180 Programming Paradigms: 4 units CS 250 Computer Organization: Software: 3 units (transferable) CS 251 Computer Organization: Hardware: 3 units CS 254 Data Structures: 3 units CS 310 Systems Programming: 3 units CS 354 Algorithm Analysis: 3 units CS 355 Database Management Systems: 3 units CS 410 Computer Architecture: 3 units CS 450 Operating Systems: 3 units CS 454 Theory of Computation: 3 units CS 460 Programming Languages: 3 units CS 470 Software Design and Development: 3 units and choose 9 units from: CS 340 Computer Security: 3 units CS 360 Object Oriented Programming: 3 units CS 375 Computer Graphics: 3 units CS 385 Selected Topics: 1-4 units CS 390 Colloquium: 1 units CS 452 Compiler Design and Construction: 3 units CS 465 Data Communications: 3 units CS 480 Artificial Intelligence: 3 units CS 495 Special Studies: 3 units CS 496 Senior Seminar: 3 units CS 497 Internship: 3 units -- Heather Donahue PGP Public Key at: http://pgpkeys.mit.edu:11371/pks/lookup?op=get&search=HeatherDonahue@...
