Students pursuing a bachelor of science with a major in physics at Grenfell Campus will normally take the following courses in their first year:

Mathematics 10001Mathematics 1001
English 1000English 1001
Physics 10502Physics 1051
Chemistry 12003
Chemistry 10013
  1. Students not able to register for Mathematics 1000 may complete the sequence Mathematics 1090, Mathematics 1000, Mathematics 1001.
  2. A student who has completed Physics 2204 and Physics 3204 in high school and who is eligible for Math 1000 should register for Physics 1050, not Physics 1020. Choosing Physics 1020 with this background might result in an extra year being required to complete the degree. A student wishing to pursue the B.Sc. with a major in physics without this background in physics may do so by taking the sequences Physics 1020, 1021, 1051.
  3. Although Chemistry is not required for the B.Sc. in physics, it is recommended; a student who wishes to include chemistry but who defers it to a later year may have difficulty in scheduling.
  4. The electives may be chosen from almost any discipline. It is recommended that a student interested in upper-year course work in astronomy or in subatomic physics select either Physics 2151 or Physics 2400, respectively, as one of these electives.
