SUGGESTED SEMESTER SCHEDULE FOR PHYSICS SPECIALTY, SCIENCE EDUCATION MAJOR, B.S. (TEACHER LICENSURE)

The following suggested schedule includes the courses required in the Science (Physics) Major, B.S., arranged by year. There is some flexibility, but because of the sequential nature of Physics courses, it is very important that Calculus I and Physics I be taken as early as possible.

Freshman

  • MATH2471
  • MATH2472
  • PHYS2101
  • PHYS2102
  • Liberal Education requirements
  • *Students not scoring sufficiently high on the Mathematics Placement Exam should complete Precalculus (MATH 1470) before taking Calculus I and Physics I. This may delay taking other required Physics courses. Consult your Physics advisor.

Sophomore

  • PHYS3600
  • Required Biology, Chemistry, or Geology core courses
  • Liberal Education requirements

Junior

  • PHYS4580
