Quantitative and Formal Reasoning

Students take two degree credit-bearing courses (at least 6 credits) and meet both goals.

  • Formulate, evaluate, and communicate conclusions and inferences from quantitative information. [QQ]
  • Apply effective and efficient mathematical or other formal processes to reason and to solve problems. [QR]

SEBS Core courses taught each semester are available to view in the Schedule of Classes. After selecting a semester, New Brunswick, and Undergraduate and hitting "Continue", choose the tab on the left labeled "Core Code". The dropdown list will show each of the SEBS Core codes. After selecting one of the options, courses will appear from all departments that fulfill that SEBS Core goal.
