A sample four-year course planning sheet can be found here. This plan requires taking courses during two summers.

A sample five-year course planning sheet can be found here, which does not require summer courses. 

Both sample plans fulfill the requirements for a Bachelor of Science, a physics major and a mathematics minor, as well as the General Education courses required by the University for graduation. You may wish to view a table of course requirements to compare the physics coursework required for each of the four emphases of the physics major.
