---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Department requirements (66 credits)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To enroll in advanced physics courses, students must earn a grade of C or higher in the physics and mathematics prerequisites of the courses, unless they are excused from this requirement by the chairperson. A student who receives a grade of C- or lower in a required physics or mathematics course must consult the chairperson before registering for another physics course.
