*Recommended mathematics electives are MATH 374, 379, 435–436.
*The required 4.0 hours of PHYS 495 may be completed over two terms.
Suggested Course Schedule—General Concentration
By its very nature, physics is more hierarchical in its course structure than typical humanities or social science disciplines. Therefore, many courses depend heavily on prerequisite courses (such as calculus and general physics). Time required to prepare for calculus, such as taking MATH 119, must be added to the four-year minimum. Normally, progress in mathematics and general physics is the pacesetter.
