Please see Option V Requirements for additional information and instructions.
All basic science coursework including mathematics shall be equal to that acceptable in an approved environmental health degree program.*
*NOTE: A basic science is a course that provides the student an understanding of the fundamental principles of the subject. Science courses must normally be acceptable to a science degree. Courses designed only for liberal arts, general education, or non-science degrees are not acceptable. Remedial mathematics and science courses are not acceptable as meeting the basic science requirements. Credit will not be allowed for more than one course with essentially the same content. The general sciences must be integrative courses that include those principles essential to the overall discipline. The remaining basic science courses may be limited to one or more divisions within the discipline and may be more descriptive in their approach.
College algebra (third-year algebra) is a course for which intermediate algebra or trigonometry shall normally be a prerequisite.
