 Notes:

The two science departments have identical general requirments

The student should take the ICS 101 if the base department is Math and ICS 103 if his base is Physics.

* The student must seek an approval to change ICS 101/103

​Notes:

Physics: 9 credits of technical electives = MATH 311, MATH 411 & MATH 430.

PHYSICS: 6 credit math electives  =  MATH 280 + MATH 232.

MATH : 15 credit electives = PHYS 301, PHYS 305, PHYS 306, PHYS 401 & PHYS 402.

A MATH majoring student needs to take 31 extra credits (152-121= 31 = 16 +15).

A PHYS majoring student needs to take 28 extra credits (152-124= 28 = 14 +14).

The extra load is equivalent to one additional academic year.

Guidelines for selecting course flow:

satisfy the pre-request co-request for each course espicially key courses

Take a reasonable load (4-5) technical coures with one light course

The course number is related to level and thus avoid jumping  (e.g. taking 4xx when you are in 2-level / Sophomore)

Distribute Humanity courses over semesters as they are not too demanding

Taking summer sessions could reduce the load in the regular semesters


​In double major case, try to make the two majors run in parallel

avoid level discrepancy (being senior in one and sophomore in another)

Be professional in both departments: A phyhsicst and a mathematician.
