* Bachelor of Science Students are required to take 24 hours of Cluster C (science courses); specifically 8 hours in each of 3 disciplines (8 in Physics, 8 in Math, and 8 in another science/math.

** You are required to take 4 elective physics courses. **PHYS 211 is a strongly recommended elective.**

*** You are required to take Physics 332 or 334. If you take both, one counts as elective.

**** You are required to take a Math elective, which can be an approved Math, Computer Science, Statistics course at the 200 level or above.
