* For schedule flexibility, it might help to choose a Global Encounters class that would also count towards the HAL or Social Science domains.  In addition, an HAL or Social Science class that counts as a Leadership class should be taken if a designated LP course is not available in the major.

** Applied Stats and Differential Equations are offered in the spring of the odd years. They can be taken in the sophomore, junior or senior year.  Linear Algebra and Algebraic Structures are offered in the spring of even years.  It is recommended that Linear Algebra be taken as early as possible after the freshmen year and that Algebraic Structures not be taken until junior or senior year.

Note that the average full-time student course load per semester is 12-16 credit hours. The Veritas Program is the required liberal arts component of the Mount education.
