Grenfell Campus (2014/2015)
9.6 Major in Physics

The Major consists of 69 credit hours as follows:

  1. Mathematics 1000, 1001, 2000, 2050, 3202, 3260. Since Mathematics 2000 is required for a number of upper-year Physics and Mathematics courses, a student not completing Mathematics 1001 in first year will require more time to complete the degree.

    A student who has completed Mathematics 1000 and Physics 1020 with a minimum grade of 65% may enrol in Physics 1051. Taking the sequence Physics 1020, 1021, and 1051 will increase the number of credit hours needed to complete the degree.

  2. Physics 1050 (or 1020), 1051, 2053, 2056, 2400 or 2151, 2820, 3060, 3061, 3220, 3400, 3650, 4100, 4880, 4950. It is recommended that students complete Chemistry 1200 and 1001.

    A student who has completed Mathematics 1000 and Physics 1020 with a minimum grade of 65% may enrol in Physics 1051. Taking the sequence Physics 1020, 1021, and 1051 will increase the number of credit hours needed to complete the degree.

  3. 9 additional credit hours in Physics chosen from Physics 3160, 3180, 3250, 3230, 3820.

  4. When choosing electives, students are reminded that the Grenfell Campus Core Program Requirements for a degree program must be met.

  5. Students may also choose to complete a Minor as part of their studies.
