Notes 
(1) 
At least 9 in approved options in one distinct field of application must be taken at the 300level or higher. Examples of fields of applications are Biology, Computing Science, Economics, Engineering, Pharmacology, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. Students should plan to take the proper prerequisites early in the program. 
(2) 
Students interested in taking nonjunior CMPUT courses as options in subsequent years should note that CMPUT 115 is a prerequisite for all nonjunior CMPUT courses. 
173.17.6 Honors in Mathematical Physics (Offered by the Department of Physics)
Note: Students who wish to enter a Department of Physics program, but do not have Mathematics 31, are advised to register in PHYS 124 and MATH 113 in the first term, and then take PHYS 146 and MATH 115 in the second term. A student who successfully completes PHYS 124 and 126, or PHYS 124 and 146, and who also completes MATH 113 (or 114 or equivalent) and MATH 115, may apply to transfer to an Honors or Specialization program in the Department of Physics, provided the GPA and course load requirements have also been met.
