Students who wish to enroll in a class but lack the listed mathematics prerequisites might succeed with an appropriate work plan. Students should consult with the course instructor Diagonal Moves (for example P2217 after P1112) are possible. Cornell Undergraduate Physics Major Courses need not be taken in listed semester. For example, you can complete the physics major even if your ±rst physics course is during your sophomore year. Similarly, outside concentrators sometimes spread the core over 4 years rather than 3. Inside Concentrator PHYS 4410 (in addition to core lab) 11 more credits PHYS3000+ Outside Concentrator 15 credits in concentration (coherent program of study complementing core) Examples: Astronomy, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Education, Computer Science, Science Technology and Society, Music/Acoustics, Philosophy, Public Policy, History of Science, Chemistry, Science Writing, Art History, Economics, Sustainability, Meteorology, Geology, Law Sophomore 2 Junior 1 Junior 1 Junior 2 Sophomore 1 Freshman 2 Freshman 1 Three course introductory sequence Special Relativity Quantum Mechanics Major Honors P1112 (or 2207) f/s prereq: Integral Calculus coreq: Classical Mechanics Lab P3310, P3330, P3360, P4410 or AEP2640 or ASTRO4410 or BEE4500 prereqs vary Electricity and Magnetism P2213 (or 2208) f/s prereq: Vector Calculus coreq: P2214 f/s prereq: Intro Differential Equations coreq: Introductory Mechanics Introductory Electricity and Magnetism Waves P1116 f/s prereq: Integral Calculus coreq: P2217 f/s prereq: Vector Calculus coreq: Differential Equations P2218 f/s prereq: Intro Differential Equations coreq: Linear Algebra P2216 f/s prereq: Introductory Mechanics coreq: P3316 f/s prereq: Special Relativity (P1116 or P2216), Waves coreq: Linear Algebra P3317 f prereq: P3316 coreq: P3323 f prereq: Linear Algebra, Waves coreq: Complex Analysis P3327 f prereq: Linear Algebra, Waves coreq: Complex Analysis P3314 s prereq: Linear Algebra, Waves coreq: P3318 s prereq: Complex Analysis, P1116 coreq: Included in P1116 Typical semester Core Concentration Mathematics Engineering (typical sequence) Honors Other Integral Calculus Vector Calculus Intro Diff.
