College of Arts and Sciences

Students completing a degree in the College of Arts and Sciences must complete three separate categories under the Quantitative and Logical Skills requirement. Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees have different courses to fulfill the Quantitative and Logical Skills requirement. This page includes the math requirements for each major in the ASC and the Quantitative and Logical Skills requirements for BA and BS students.

Note: Honors students in the College of Arts and Sciences may be expected to complete higher-level course work to satisfy the math requirement. Honors students should refer to the Honors Guides to the GE for honors math requirements.

Bachelor of Arts Quantitative and Logical Skills Requirement


The goal of courses in this category is to develop skills in quantitative literacy and logical reasoning, including the ability to identify valid arguments, use mathematical models, and draw conclusions and critically evaluate results based on data.

  1. Basic Computation Skills (fulfill one of the following)

  • Achieve a standardized test score as specified by the State of Ohio
  • Attain Math Placement Test Score R or higher
  • Complete Math 10602 or Math 1075. Math 10602 and Math 1075 are remedial and do not count toward the 121 hour minimum requirement for the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Arts in Journalism.

If students earn an ACT Math Subscore of 22 or higher; an SAT Math score of 520 or higher; a score of 108EA (Elementary Algebra) or 69 CLM (College Level Math) on the College Board's Accuplacer tests; or an Algebra Scale Score of 52 on the ACT's Compass math placement test, and the test was taken within two years of enrollment, then by State of Ohio law you are not required to take remedial math (courses numbered 1075 and below) regardless of the score on the Math Placement Test. However, students are strongly encouraged to take the math course tested into, especially if students plan to continue taking a sequence of math courses.

Math 1060 is only offered on the regional campuses. Math 1060 is a terminal math course designed to fulfill the Quantitative and logical Skills: Basic Computational Skills category of the GE. Students may follow up with Math 1116 to satisfy the Math and Logical Analysis category of the GE. Students who wish to take math courses higher than Math 1116 should take Math 1075 rather than Math 1060.

  1. Mathematical and Logical Analysis, 3-5 hours
    Choose one course from the following list.

3 except Math 1125, Math 1126, and courses numbered XX93 or XX94

  1. Data Analysis, 3 hours
    Choose one course from the following list. The course may also count in your major, if it is at the 2000-level or above and approved by the student's advisor.
