 One course must be PHY332/333, PHY423/433 or PHY490

This program assumes a student will us MAT124M and PHY292/292D to meet the general education Mathematics and Laboratory Science requirements.

Most financial aid packages stipulate 12 credits/semester; Minnesota state grants are reduced when credit falls below 15 credits/semester. (Interim may be split between fall and spring for the state grant purposes only.)
