Physical Science Major Requirements

The College offers an interdisciplinary physical science major. The physical science major is specifically designed to meet the core courses required for students interested in pursuing the Pre-Engineering Combined Plan programs with Columbia University.

Eight basic courses in the sciences : CHM 103 General Chemistry I , CHM 104 General Chemistry II , CSI 110 Computer Science I , MTH 121 Calculus I , MTH 122 Calculus II, MTH 227 Differential Equations, PHY 121 General Physics I , PHY 122 General Physics II

Four courses numbered 200 or greater that focus the student interest in two disciplines: chemistry, computer science, mathematics, or physics.

Two courses numbered 300 or greater that continue the study in one or both of the chosen disciplines.

Students have the option of expanding their focus by completing additional courses in the sciences.
