    d. Probability and Statistics
    e. Discrete Mathematics
    f. Applied Mathematics
    g. Logic and Foundations of Science
    h. Physics
    i. Mathematical Economics
    j. Industrial Engineering
    k. Electrical Engineering

2. Depth requirement :

Students must take a two course sequence chosen from one topic among the list above from a) to f) such as MATH 531-532, MATH 521-522 etc. None of these courses can be a reading course nor a 400 level course.
