General Physics Track

This track is specifically designed for students who plan to go to physics graduate school.  Apart from the recommended math courses, the following physics courses are required to both complete the physics major following the general physics track and to be optimally prepared for physics graduate school.  

Physics Core:

The following is the required list of courses for completing the physics core: 
PHYS 113, 116, 213, 214, 316, 324

Physics Labs: 

Required are: PHYS342 (Experimental Optics) and PHYS345 (Electronics Lab).  One of these two labs may be substituted by either one of the following three options: 

1. Computational Physics (PHYS340)
2. A thesis tutorial with a physics faculty;
3. A 1.0 credit research tutorial (which may be taken as two 0.5 credit research tutorials) with a physics faculty


Required are PHYS215, 219, 313, 315, 358
