The interdepartmental major in mathematics/physics is intended for those students who wish to combine these two areas of study, but do not want to major in one at the expense of the other or be limited by the concentration of courses in two departments necessary for a double major. The student with this major could enter a career in computer science or would be well prepared to enter a program in applied mathematics or mathematical physics.
Requirements for Major
The major is not intended to lead to secondary teacher certification and is not open to those who have a major in both mathematics and physics. However, a student may combine this major with a certification major in either mathematics or physics.
All courses for the mathematics/physics major must be taken for a numerical grade.
Mathematics/physics majors are expected to attend all colloquia of the Mathematics and Computer Science Department and the Physics Department.
A student satisfies the minimum requirements by doing all of the following:
