Category A - Logic and Numbers for Rational Thinking
(One course required - 3 credit hours)

The courses in this category emphasize the use of symbols as a means of expressing complex thoughts and information lucidly and accurately.  Many involve computational and mathematical operations-that is, the use of mathematics as a symbolic language where each element and rule of operation is defined very clearly in order to obtain precise understanding.  Similarly, the remainder of teh courses which may be taken to fulfill this requirement stress precise, logical approaches to reasoning; for example, the study of those aspects of philosophy involving the exposition of abstract ideas.

One course must be taken from any of the following, with the exception the mathematics course selected under Basic Skills and Competencies which may not be used for this requirement.
