Notes

1 The complete list of courses is recommended for students intending to pursue graduate studies in physics.
2 PHY3341 is a corequisite for PHY3370.
3 Excluding PHY3902, PHY3903, PHY3904, PHY4006, PHY4327, PHY4903 and PHY4906.
Some Physics courses are only offered in English once every second year.

For students registered in the Faculty of Science: If the components of your program of study require common compulsory courses, you will have to replace the units as follows:
1) 1000-level courses must be replaced with electives;
2) 2000, 3000 or 4000-level courses must be replaced with courses from either discipline at the same level or above.

Once you have decided on the replacement courses, please inform the Office of Undergraduate Programs of the Faculty of Science by email at infosci@uOttawa.ca so we may amend your Academic report accordingly.
 
Please note that all programs in the Faculty of Science require a minimum of 12 course units from the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Social Sciences or the Telfer School of Management.

Co-operative education is available when taken as part of an honours degree.
The extended French stream is available when taken as part of an honours degree.
