  • Student has earned credit for: MTH 151, MTH 251; PHY 191, PHY 192 (or equivalents)

  • All requirements are subject to change.
  • Students must complete all requirements in order to graduate.
  • Please be aware that some PHY courses are only offered in the fall and others in the spring; attention must be paid to the pre-requisite structure of these courses.
  • Several thematic sequences could be completed using courses required for the major (e.g. MTH); this might result in additional elective hours.
