Astronomy (ID), B.A.


Requirements for the Interdepartmental Major:


Students taking physics or astronomy as part of an 8-6  interdepartmental major program can choose from either a conceptual or a calculus track. Suitable choices of courses numbered in the 50s, as well as independent study courses 495-498, can count toward the conceptual track ID major (such as Arts and Physics or Physics and Society). Suitable choices of courses numbered 100 or greater can count toward a calculus track ID major (such as Computational Physics, Biophysics, Geophysics, Environmental or Chemical Physics). For any of these ID majors, a written proposal must be submitted by the student, in consultation with their faculty advisor, for approval by the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
