Suggested Enrollment Pattern

The following are suggested course enrollment patterns for 1) P13,14 and 2) P15, 16, 19 students in sophomore through senior years. It is desirable to take P41 and P66 consecutively, but not required and often not compatible with other elective choices. P72 and P68, P73 or P76 make a recommended senior year sampling of graduate school preparatory and research related offerings. Students choosing to do an honors thesis for their culminating experience may need to take relevant research area courses in their junior year, eg. P68 (Introductory Plasma Physics), P73 (Introductory Condensed Matter Physics ) and appropriate Astronomy courses. Students who go quickly through 60's - 70's course offerings may choose to take graduate level courses in their senior year.
