Mathematics and Physics
Adviser for the major: Vincent Moncrief, 64 SPL, 432-6930, firstname.lastname@example.org
The major in Mathematics and Physics allows students to explore the productive interaction between the two subjects more extensively than either individual major. Prerequisites to the major include MATH 120 or its equivalent, an introductory physics lecture sequence numbered 180, 181 or above, and the associated laboratory sequence PHYS 205L, 206L. Beyond the prerequisites, the major requires a minimum of fourteen term courses above the introductory level, including the senior project. At least six of these must be Mathematics courses numbered 222 or above, and at least six must be advanced Physics courses chosen in consultation with the adviser for the major. A senior project in PHYS 471 or 472 on a topic appropriate for the combined major and acceptable to both the Physics and the Mathematics departments is also required. The student must present an oral report on this project to the Mathematics department.
