Theoretical Physics (THPY) |
Department of Physics, College of Physical and Engineering Science.
Any student seeking admission into this specialization who does not have at least a 70% average in the physics and mathematics courses of semesters 1 and 2 must consult with the Departmental Advisor.
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 Department of Physics Departmental Advisor.
This major requires the completion of 21.25 credits. At least 1.00 of these credits must be obtained from the completion of Arts and/or Social Science courses.
The program for the first three semesters is the same as the Major in Physics program.
