Transfer students must take at least one half of the required mathematics courses numbered above 300 at Christian Brothers University. Forensics Option: 

1 Science electives must include at least 8 hours in one of Biology, Chemistry, or Physics outside the area chosen for the minor.
2 Minor electives must be chosen to obtain a minor in one of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, or Physics. Credits necessary for the minor vary with the requirements for that minor. Reduce free electives by the difference of those credits required by the chosen minor and those listed as minor elective credits in this paradigm.
3 The Mathematics electives must be chosen from MATH 301, 308, 309, 329, 405, or 470-479.
4 Must satisfy moral values requirement.
