Gonzaga's Physics department offers a Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts in Physics. Physics (PHYS) majors will take the following science and math courses in the first semester:
- PHYS 103 Scientific Physics I*
- PHYS 103L Scientific Physics I Lab*
- PHYS 103R Scientific Physics Recitation*
- MATH 157 Calculus and Analytic Geometry I*
*Placement into PHYS 103 and MATH 157 is evaluated by Academic Advising and Assistance and the Physics and Math Departments using the student's high school transcript and standardized test scores. Students not ready for MATH 157 will start in MATH 147 (Pre-calculus). PHYS 103 and MATH 157 would then be taken in the second semester.
For program information and course descriptions, please visit the on-line Undergraduate Catalogue. You will follow the 2013-14 Undergraduate Catalogue - this is your contract with the University, and vis versa. Be sure to review the information in the 13-14 catalogue when it becomes available (the catalogue is still under review, and should be posted to the website this summer). Until then, please refer to the 2012-2013 Undergraduate Catalogue, as much of the information is the same.
