Introduction to Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math (STEM)

This program supports students interested in several different STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) careers including biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, and mathematics.

This 15-credit pathway is designed to give non-matriculated students a set of introductory level STEM college credits. 

Pathway Requirements (listed in suggested course sequence):

  • ENG 101: Composition (3 credits)
  • MAT 122:  Precalculus or higher course (4 credits)

Additionally, select one of the four pathway concentrations:

  1. BIO 117:  This is Life! (4 credits), BIO 118:  Animal Life* (2 credits), and BIO 119:  Plant Life* (2 credits)
  2. CHY 101:  General Chemistry I* (4 credits) and CHY 102:  General Chemistry II* (4 credits)
  3. PHY 121:  Physics for Engineers and Scientists I* (4 credits) and PHY 122:  Physics for Engineers and Scientists II* (4 credits) (note: MAT 126 Calculus I is needed as a prerequisite but may be taken concurrently.)
  4. PHY 111:  Physics I* (4 credits) and PHY 112:  Physics II* (4 credits)

This pathway may lead to the following programs at UMM:

B.A. in Biology with concentrations in:

  • Fisheries Biology
  • Wildlife Biology
  • Pre-Professional

B.S. in Marine Biology with concentrations in:

  • Marine Ecology
