Physics (Co-op)

Department of Physics, College of Physical & Engineering Science.

Since some of the required courses are not offered every semester, students entering Honours Physics (Co-op) should plan their program in consultation with the Physics Department.

To graduate from the Co-op program a minimum of 4 successfully completed work terms is normally required.

Specialized Honours

+Fall Semester 1

One biological science course from 17-115, 65-100, 92-102.
19-104 General Chemistry I
63-120 Calculus I
