Lower Division Electives

Lower division electives: Any 2000-level course in the KSU curriculum (4 Credit Hours).  It is recommended that these courses be chosen from among those that are specified for one of the specific concentration areas described in the KSU Mathematics Major Handbook. A copy of this handbook can be obtained electronically at http://math.kennesaw.edu/majorshandbook. The 6 hours of Area F concentration-based electives are 2000 level courses. A minimum of 24 of the 27 hours of upper division concentration-based electives must be courses at the 3000 or 4000 level. (Up to 3 hours of upper level concentration-based electives can be satisfied using “overflow” hours that have been accumulated from science courses taken in Area D.) Each student is strongly encouraged to meet with his/her advisor at least once per semester in order to ensure that the student remains on track toward completion of the selected program of study.
