From the 2012-2013 Millsaps Catalog
Requirements for major: Students may complete a major in physics with 10 courses, including General Physics I (PHYS 1003) and General Physics II (PHYS 1013), General Physics Laboratory I (PHYS 1001) and II (PHYS 1013), Modern Physics (PHYS 2000), Classical Mechanics (PHYS 3100), Electromagnetism (3110), Thermal Physics (PHYS 3120), Quantum Mechanics (PHYS 3140), Advanced Physics Laboratory (PHYS 3210), Similarities in Physics (PHYS 4902), and Senior Seminar (PHYS 4912). Students may choose between Electronics for Scientists (PHYS 3300) or applications of Modern Physics (PHYS 2010). Students must receive a C or better in all of the required physics courses. Prospective majors should take General Physics I (PHYS 1003) and II (PHYS 1013) and General Physics Laboratory I (PHYS 1001) and II (PHYS 1011) no later than the sophomore year.
Requirements for minor: Students may elect a minor in physics with three courses beyond General Physics I (PHYS 1003) and II (PHYS 1013), and General Physics Laboratory I (PHYS 1001) and II (PHYS 1011). The courses must be approved by the department chair. One of these courses must be Modern Physics (PHYS 2000).
Mathematics Requirements Students interested in maintaining the option of study in physics or related fields (e.g., preengineering) are urged to begin their mathematics course work at Millsaps as early as possible and at the highest level possible. To realistically complete a physics or pre-engineering program, students must take Calculus I (MATH 1220) during or before their first year at Millsaps.
It is required that a minimum of Calculus I (MATH 1220), II (MATH 2230), and III (MATH 2240), and Differential Equations (MATH 3540) be taken by all physics or pre-engineering majors.
