Departmental Objectives. The curriculum of the Department of Physics and
Astronomy is designed to provide ( 1 ) training for students who intend to pursue
graduate work in physics or astronomy; (2) preparation for students who intend
to enter industrial or governmental service as physicists or astronomers; (3) a
fundamental background for other physical sciences and engineering; (4) the
broadening program required by the biological science, premedical, predental,
and nursing programs; (5) training in the subject matter of physics for pro-
spective teachers of the physical sciences; and (6) a persf>ective of science and
an introduction to the role of physics in the human quest for understanding.

Sequence for Science, Technical, and Professional Students. Students who
expect to major in physics, other physical sciences, or engineering should begin
their study of physics by electing Physics 121 and 122 or, if the study of physics
is to begin in the second year. Physics 211 and 213. Those who expect to study
medicine or dentistry, or to major in the biological sciences may elect Physics
201 and 202, although the series beginning with 211 is preferred for those who
have good mathematics backgrounds. Students who desire an elementary course
in applied physics should take Physics 105 and 106.

Courses for Non-science Students. Non-science students may elect with profit
Physics 100, 101, 110, or 300, which emphasize the known fundamental princi-
ples of our physical environment and also the role of physics as one of the hu-
manities as well as a science; or Physics 127, 129, 130, 137, 167, or 177, which
are organized with the object of giving the student an understanding of more
specialized areas of his physical environment.

Prospective Teachers. Students expecting to use physics as a teaching major or
minor or as part of a composite teaching major should refer to the part of this
catalog concerned with the subject-matter preparation of secondary school
teachers. They are also invited to consider the MA-3 program beginning in
the junior year, which is described below.

Majors in Physics

The Department of Physics and Astronomy offers programs leading to the
Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree. The former is intended for


those students who plan to pursue careers in research or in teaching at the
college level. The latter is a liberal arts degree and may profitably be elected
by those who intend to pursue careers in secondary or junior college teaching,
business administration, engineering, etc.

Requirements for the B.S. Degree

For a student to graduate with the Bachelor of Science degree, he must success-
fully complete (C grade or better) the following courses: Physics 121, 122, 221
(or 211, 213), 222, 214, 316, 317 (or Math. 244), 318 (or Math. 436), 321, 322,
341, 342, 386, 387, plus six or more credit hours selected from the 300, 400, or
500 series physics classes; and Math. 112, 113, 214, and 434, or their equivalent.

Requirements for the B.A. Degree

For the Bachelor of Arts degree, the student must successfully complete the fol-
lowing courses: Physics 121, 122, 221 (or 211, 213), 214, 222, 300, 316, 317,
321, 322 (341 and 386 may be substituted for 322); Math. 112, 113, 214, 434
(or their equivalents); and a second approved 14-hour field of concentration
outside the department.

Physics-Astronomy Option

Physics majors whose primary interest is astronomy or astrophysics must take
the same basic courses listed under the requirements for a physics major. It is
recommended that these students take Physics 129 and 130 during the freshman
year. They should also include Physics 527, 528 as part of their program in
the senior year.

Suggested Courses for Physics Majors

Language. The student is strongly urged to achieve competence in a foreign
language (German, Russian, or French) during his undergraduate career, es-
pecially if he intends to go to graduate school. A summer program in French,
German, or Russian would be highly advantageous. French 95, 96 or German
95, 96 might be considered.

Religion. It is suggested that the student take advantage of the opportunity to
replace four hours of religion credit by the accumulation of four hours of credit
for devotional assembly.

Mathematics. Students in physics should take mathematics beginning the first
semester of the freshman year. The course with which the student begins his
training in mathematics is determined by the results of the mathematics place-
ment test taken prior to registration. Normally the student will begin with
Math. 112 or 141, but inadequate mathematics preparation in high school may
make it necessary for him to begin with Math. 111. In the latter case the stu-
dent should enter school during the Summer Term and bring his mathematics
preparation to the point where he can take Math. 112 or 141 during the Fall

Course Planning

BS-3 and MS-4 Programs. Considerable flexibility is available to the student
in planning his program for the degrees in physics. Generally a core of four
courses plus religion and physical education is desirable each semester with
an appropriately reduced load for Spring or Summer terms.

A sample program which enables the student to complete a bachelor's degree
at the end of three years (BS-3) and a master's degree at the end of the fourth
year (MS-4) appears below. Those who plan to take the Graduate Record Ex-
amination for admission to a Ph.D. program at BYU or to a graduate school
elsewhere should be sure to include Physics 551 and 552 in their programs even
though these courses are not required for the B.S. degree. The student may
use a red pencil to fill in the table to suit his own needs — either to accelerate
or spread out his program. Physics and mathematics courses required for
graduation appear in bold face. Students interested in the physics-astronomy
option should include Physics 129, 130, 527, and 528, as noted above.
