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
