Program Planning


Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Education, Physics/Science Education Sample Sequencing Plan (2010 / 2011)

Shown below is a sample sequence of courses for your degree. If you follow this plan, you should be able to graduate in five years, provided you complete five courses per semester. This is just one example of how you could complete your major and degree requirements; you may find that a different sequence works as well as this one.

See the UofL Calendar and/or the Program Planning Guide for details regarding program requirements.

Elementary Education and Special/Inclusive Education students will reverse the Fall and Spring semesters in Year 5 and complete PS III in the Spring.
1 Education 2500 may also be taken in Spring and Summer semester.
2 Students require one of Astronomy 2020 or Astronomy 2070. Alternatively, students may complete a GLER course in Spring, Year 2 and Astronomy 2070 in Fall, Year 2.
3 Physics electives may be chosen from Physics, Astronomy, or Engineering.
Note: Students wishing to include 3000-level Physics courses in their program must take Mathematics 2580 (Calculus IV) which is a prerequisite for most Physics courses at the 3000/4000 level.
