Physics Correlate Sequence

Correlate Sequence in Physics:

Students majoring in other programs may elect a correlate sequence in physics.

The requirements for this correlate sequence consist of 4 units of physics above the introductory level (PHYS 113 /PHYS 114  or equivalent), one of which must be from PHYS 320 , 341 , or 375  or for students selecting the Physics Correlate with Teaching Emphasis described below, PHYS 399 . No courses elected NRO can be counted towards the correlate sequence. All physics correlate sequences must be approved by the correlate advisor.

Physics Correlate with Teaching Emphasis:

Students interested in the Physics courses needed for teaching high school physics after Vassar may complete the following coursework above the introductory level (PHYS 113 /PHYS 114  or equivalent).  PHYS 200 , PHYS 210 , PHYS 298  - Lab Apprenticeship (1/2 unit), PHYS 298  - Lab Development (1/2 unit), and PHYS 399 - Senior Independent Work  on physics education and curriculum development.  

Recommended courses in Physics/Astronomy are ASTR 220 , PHYS 240 , and PHYS 202 /PHYS 203 . Students interested in certification for Physics teaching should consult with the Education Department.  Additional recommended courses in Education are EDUC 235  and EDUC 392 . Consult Cindy Schwarz.
