UAH

 

Students transferring from Alabama two-year and four-year colleges and universities should consult the AGSC site for complete details regarding Areas I-IV for all majors, including the list of approved courses for each institution.

Specific requirements for students planning to transfer to UAH and major in biological sciences are included below:

Area I
Written Composition (6 sh)
Area II 
Humanities and Fine Arts (12 sh)

" Requirements include at least 12 semester hours in humanities with a minimum of 3 semester hours in literature, 3 semester hours in the arts, and the remaining semester hours from the humanities and/or fine arts".

"As part of the General Studies Curriculum, students must complete a 6-semester hour sequence either in literature or in history."

The B.S. degree at UAH requires a course in rhetorical communication. This requirement can be met by using SPH 106 or SPH 107 to partially fulfill the Area II requirements, or by using it to complete the hours in Area V.

Area III - Natural Sciences and Mathematics (11 sh)

"Requirements include at least 11 semester hours with at least 3 semester hours in mathematics at the precalculus algebra level or higher and at least 8 semester hours in the natural sciences which must include laboratory experiences."

AGSC Requirement:
Computer Science majors must complete a course in precalculus algebra or higher and a two-course sequence in a natural science laboratory course.

The B.S. degree at UAH requires completion of a level III math course. Students planning to transfer to UAH in computer science are strongly encouraged to take the following course to meet this requirement, either in Area III or in Area V. 
AL College System Course Titles:
MTH 125 Calculus I

Area IV 
History, Social, and Behavioral Sciences (12 sh)

"Requirements include 12 semester hours with at least a 3 semester hour course in history and at least 6 semester hours from among other disciplines in the social and behavioral sciences."

"As part of the General Studies Curriculum, students must complete a 6-semester hour sequence either in literature or in history."

Area V - Preprofessional, Major and Elective Courses For Computer Science Majors at UAH (22-23 sh)

1. Required Courses - Requirements ratified by the AGSC for Computer Science
        AL College System Course Titles
        *MTH 113 Precalculus Trigonometry (3sh)
        *MTH 125 Calculus I (4sh)
        *MTH 126 Calculus II (4 sh)

        CIS 285 Object-Oriented Programming (3sh)
        Or
        CIS 251 C Programming (3sh)

*If not already satisfied

2. Courses to fulfill Area V for major in Computer Science at UAH:
        The additional 10-11 sh to complete Area V should be fulfilled by choosing from the following:
UAH Course Titles AL College System Course Titles
CM 113 Introduction to Rhetorical Communication - if not taken in Area II. (3 sh) SPH 106 Fundamentals of Oral Communication
SPH 107 Fundamentals of Public Speaking

At UAH all computer science majors must complete a math minor. Additional courses in the minor which may be used in Area V: 
MA 201 Calculus C (4sh)
MA 244 Introduction to Linear Algebra (4sh)
(Not MTH 238 Applied Differential Equations, since a junior-level differential equations class is required for a math major or minor at UAH).

MTH 227 Calculus III 
MTH 237 Linear Algebra
