Major Course Requirements

Major course Requirements

The following table lists courses relevant to the four physics emphases. For a complete list of all course available from the UWW Physics Department please see the Physics Courses page. An "R" beside a course indicates that it is a required course for the above major. Courses denoted by "C1" or "C2" indicate groups of courses that can be chosen by the student to fulfill the major. Courses denoted "E" indicate elective courses eligible to be chosen to attain the minimum number of physics course credits for the corresponding major in addition to the set required courses. For all of these additional courses, no more than 3 credits can come from courses 490-499, denoted by "E".
