* In Fall 2017, the university's registration software requires that you take corequisites during the same semester (e.g. the software requires that PHY111, MAT161 and MAT163 all be taken together). If you've already taken the required math for a physics course you want to take, consult your advisor and/or physics instructor to obtain an over-ride.
This figure shows a graphical representation of prerequisites in the physics program.
