Physics (Co-op)

Department of Physics, College of Physical and Engineering Science.

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

To graduate from the Co-op program a minimum of 4 successfully completed work terms (COOP*1000, COOP*2000, COOP*3000, COOP*4000) is normally required.
