Each of UCSC's four calculus sequences is designed for students in a specific group of majors. Some majors belong to more than one of these groups, and some majors accept more than one version of calculus.

#####
**AMS/Econ 11AB**

Calculus for Economics

AMS/Econ 11AB is a single and multi variable calculus sequence with a focus on business and economics.

*Prerequisites*: MP tier 300+ or AP Calculus AB/BC score 3+ or AMS 3 or Math 3.

#####
**Math 11AB **

Calculus with Applications

Math 11AB is a single variable calculus sequence with a focus on the life sciences.

*Prerequisites*: MP tier 300+ or AP Calculus AB/BC score 3+ or AMS 3 or Math 3.

#####
**Math 19AB **

Calculus for the Sciences, Mathematics, and Engineering

Math 19AB is a single variable calculus sequence offered in both online and traditional formats.

*Prerequisites*: MP tier 400+ or AP Calculus AB/BC score 3+ or AMS 3 or Math 3.

#####
**Math 20AB**

Honors Calculus

*Honors Calculus* introduces techniques of rigorous proof and the abstract concepts underlying calculus.

*Prerequisites*: MP tier 500 or AP Calculus BC score 3+.

## Unsure about your major?

If you don't know yet what you'll major in, you can keep your options open by taking a calculus sequence that's accepted for a wide variety of majors.

Math 19AB *is* accepted for any major that requires Math 11AB, but Math 11AB *isn't* accepted for most majors that require Math 19AB.

The relationship between AMS/Econ 11AB and Math 11AB or 19AB is more complicated. AMS/Econ 11AB covers both *single* and *multi-variable* calculus, while Math 11AB and 19AB cover only *single* variable calculus. Hence you will need to supplement Math 11AB or 19AB with Math 22, *Introduction To Calculus Of Several Variables*, if you decide to major in Economics after taking one of the Math calculus sequences.

It's a good idea to check with advisors for any majors that you're considering. They can give you in-depth advice about your options.
