The Physics program requires a “C” or better in any course in the College of Engineering and Science prior to taking courses for which these are prerequisites. The Physics program also requires a “C” or better in PHYS 424 .
*Directed electives can be chosen from advanced Physics, Mathematics, Engineering, Computer Science, or Chemistry courses and must include at least one computer programming course such as CSC 120 , MEEN 292 , or ELEN 242 .
Medical Physics Track
Students follow the physics curriculum (81 credit hours of major courses and 39 credit hours of general education requirement) and directed electives related to Medical Science. To satisfy the requirements of postgraduate schools in the Medical Fields, through the major courses and general education requirements, students will acquire at least 12 credit hours in biological science, 16 credit hours in chemistry, 15 credit hours in math, 6 credit hours in physics. Scroll down for details. To be able to satisfy the requirements for postgraduate schools in medical physics or medicine, the student must do the following.
Substitute PHYS 430 for PHYS 417
Take 2 credit hours of PHYS 435 instead of 3
For BISC elective take BISC 130
