Advising & General Information
To schedule an appointment with the Director of Undergraduate Studies
During advising periods, each physics major will receive an email announcing the beginning of the advisement period. Each physics major is required to meet with his/her adviser before registering for the upcoming semester's classes. If you wish to declare physics as your major please contact the director of undergraduate studies, Dr. Tom Bing, to discusss the degree options available to you.
The Director of Undergraduate Studies is assisted by Susan Cook, Undergraduate Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org, who can also be contacted for information.
The majority of pre-med students will fulfill their physics requirement after their freshmen year. However, pre-meds who want to keep a BS physics major open as an option, are advised to take calculus-based Physics 151 and 152 freshmen year.
The physics department provides majors and minors with a quiet and comfortable place to study within the Department. The Undergraduate lounge is located in room N229. It is adjacent to the Department¿s kitchen which you are also welcome to use. Please feel free to bring guests from physics classes with whom you are studying, but be sure to always accompany your guests and observe consideration for other students who need a quiet study area. All guests must be accompanied by a Physics major or minor. There are two computers set up with relevant software for your use. Please report any problems with them to Susan Cook in N248.
