# What math classes do I need to take?

Every John Carroll Student is required to complete one Division IV Mathematics (MT) course as part of the University Core Curriculum requirements. Math courses that satisfy the core requirement are indicated by a “IV” in the Div/Req column in the Schedule of Classes.

Some majors have particular math course requirements.

Regardless of their major, students should consult with their advisors and the *Undergraduate Bulletin* before registering for any mathematics course. For those students taking Calculus, the sequence MT 133 – MT 134 can be used to replace a requirement of MT 135.

Students majoring in programs that do not require a specific mathematics class may choose from MT 118 (Applied Mathematics), MT 122 (Elementary Statistics I), MT 135 (Calculus), MT 160 (Mathematics and Creativity), MT 162 (Mathematics from Nonwestern Cultures), and MT 130 (Applied Calculus)
