In addition to Quantitative Foundations course work, you will take one course in which quantitative reasoning skills are central to course content, delivery, and evaluation. “QR” courses may be entirely devoted to quantitative reasoning, such as offerings in mathematics and statistics. “QR” designations may also be attached to other courses in other disciplines that include major quantitative reasoning. One course, beyond the Quantitative Reasoning Foundation component, is required.
What is required?
One course or qualifying exam credit
You may fulfill Quantitative Reasoning by:
- successfully completing an SMU course that has been tagged for Quantitative Reasoning
- earning exam or transfer credit for ECO 1311 (may need to file a UC DPR Update Request)
- successfully completing SMU or transfer coursework that you believe meets the Quantitative Reasoning requirement and filing a Course-Based Proficiency Request
