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 the Major in Theoretical Physics should plan their program in consultation with the Physics departmental advisor.
This major requires the completion of [21.25] credits.
 The program for the first three semesters is the same as the Major in Physics program.
