Proficiencies and Experiences
Quantitative Reasoning (QR):
addition to Quantitative Foundations course work, you will take one
course in which quantitative reasoning skills are central to course content,
delivery, and evaluation.
courses may be entirely devoted to quantitative reasoning, such as offerings
in mathematics and statistics. “Q” designations may also be attached to
other courses in other disciplines that include major quantitative
reasoning. One course, beyond the Quantitative Reasoning Foundation
component, is required.
