The Department of Physics offers: (1) a Concentration Program in Physics. (2) a Concentration Program in General Physics.


Physics

May be elected as a departmental concentration program.

Prerequisites to Concentration. Mathematics through Mathematics 216 (or the equivalent); Physics 140/141 and 240/241 (recommended sequence), and Physics 242. Physics 242 may be elected concurrently with Physics 401 or 405 or any intermediate laboratory course; however, it is a prerequisite to all other intermediate courses. Physics 401 and 405 should precede Physics 453; Physics 453 is a prerequisite to most courses numbered above 453.

Concentration Program. At least 30 credits in physics and mathematics, including at least 26 in physics courses numbered 401 and above. A concentration plan must include:

1. Physics 401, 405, 406, 453, and 465.

2. two courses from among Physics 403, 407, 454 and 455 (intermediate laboratory).

3. Physics 459, 461, or 464 (advanced laboratory).

4. two courses from among Physics 402, 411, 413, 417, 418, 435, 451, 452, 455, 457, 460, 463, and 468.

5. Mathematics 450 (or the equivalent).

Physics 401, 405, 406, and 453 must be completed with a minimum grade of "C."

Honors Concentration. Students who have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 are encouraged to elect an Honors concentration in physics. In addition to the regular departmental requirements for concentration, candidates for an Honors concentration must elect seven credits of physics from courses numbered 401 and above which are not otherwise required and must also complete a senior Honors thesis based on research (Physics 499) done under the supervision of a faculty member.


General Physics (A.B. or B.S.)

May be elected as a departmental concentration program.

Prerequisites to Concentration. Mathematics through Mathematics 216 (or the equivalent); Physics 140/141 and 240/241 (or Physics 125/127 and 126/128), and Physics 242. Physics 242 may be elected concurrently with Physics 401 or 405 or any intermediate laboratory course; however, it is a prerequisite to all other intermediate courses. Physics 401 and 405 should precede Physics 453; Physics 453 is a prerequisite to most courses numbered above 453.

Concentration Program. At least 30 credits in physics and mathematics, including at least 20 in physics courses numbered 401 and above. A concentration plan must include:

1. Physics 401, 405, 406, and 453.

2. one course from among Physics 403, 407, and 409 (intermediate laboratory).

3. Six credits from the following (which were not used to satisfy requirement 2, above): Physics 402, 403, 407, 409, 411, 413, 419, 435, 455, 459, 460, 461, 463, 464, 468, or 489.

4. Mathematics 450 (or the equivalent).

5. Cognates: Six credits of approved courses from one cognate department. Mathematics 450 may not be included in these six credits.

Physics 401, 405, 406, and 453 must be completed with a minimum grade of "C."

Physics 409, 419, and 489 are not acceptable for the degree BS in physics.

A total of 60 credits of mathematics and natural science must be elected to receive the Bachelor of Science degree.

Advising and Counseling. A concentration plan in physics is developed in consultation with and must be approved by the concentration advisor. The advisor's name and consultation hours will be posted in the department office, 1049 Randall Laboratory.

Teaching Certificate. A teaching certificate with a major in physics requires 30 credits of physics; a minor requires 20. These credits must include Physics 125/127 and 126/128, or Physics 140/141 and 240/241; and Physics 242. The remainder of the program consists of courses numbered 400 or above or the equivalent.
