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 Astronomy or History of Astronomy). Suitable choices of courses numbered 100 or greater can count toward a calculus track ID major (such as Astrobiology or Geophysics). 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.

Requirements for the Leadership in Medicine Program:

Students in the Leadership in Medicine program whose science emphasis is in physics should take the following seven courses: PHY 110  , PHY 111  (both already core courses), PHY 122  , PHY 123  , PHY 200  , PHY 210  , and one additional course from PHY 220  , PHY 230  , PHY 270  , PHY 310  , or PHY 311  in consultation with their physics adviser.
