Math 115, Elementary Statistics, has no prerequisite and is recommended for any non-mathematics major.

For the M.A., M.S., and Ph.D., A reading knowledge of French or German is desirable for graduate study in mathematics, especially for students working toward a doctoral degree, but is not a requirement for the master's degree.
