Theoretical Physics
Department of Physics, College of Physical & Engineering Science.
A grade of 70% in the physics and mathematics courses of semesters 1 and 2 is normally required for admission to semester 3 of this program.
Since some of the required courses are not offered every semester, students entering Honours Theoretical Physics should plan their program in consultation with the Physics Department.
+Semester 1
 One biological science course from 17115, 65100, 92102.
 19104 General Chemistry I
 63120 Calculus I
 76100 An Introduction to Mechanics
 One Arts or Social Science elective.
Semester 2
 One biological science course from 17115, 65100, 92102.
 19105 General Chemistry II
 63121 Calculus II

 One elective.
Students with no previous computing experience are strongly advised to take 27120 or 27160. If a science elective is chosen, an arts or social science elective will be required later.
Students who have taken physics courses other than those listed for semesters 1 and 2, may proceed to semester 3 with the permission of the Physics Department.
+Students who have completed the MPC2 program in first year will have satisfied the requirement to do 19104, 19105, 27150, 27160, 27170, 63120, 63121 (or 63100, 63101 or 63108, 63208), 76100, 76101 (or 76107, 76108 or 76111, 76113).
