Example Course Plan
Physics Course Plan (first 3 semesters)
This is an example course plan based on the 2020-2021 University Catalog; your actual
schedule may deviate from this example. Your faculty advisor will work with you to
select appropriate courses.
As an IWU student, it is your responsibility to track your progress each semester
towards completing graduation requirements using the MyIWU degree evaluation tool.
*All Pre-Engineering students and all Physics majors should normally enroll in PHYS
105 during their first semester and PHYS 106 during their second semester. Students
with especially strong backgrounds in physics and mathematics may, after consultation
with the department, begin with 207. Anyone interested in this option should contact
the Department Chair.
Students interested in studying abroad should consult with a faculty member in the
Department of Physics to decide what semester(s) would be most appropriate.
- Students who have difficulty registering for either the required physics or calculus
courses should contact the Chair.
- Students who are planning to double major in Physics and Secondary Education should
also follow the Physics/Secondary Education Course Plan.
