MAT1341 is a prerequisite to some second year physics courses; check the university calendar. Students interested in applying for graduate studies in biological physics in the Department of Physics at uOttawa are recommended to take some of the following courses: PHY2361, PHY3350, PHY3355, MAT2324 or MAT2384. For more details the interested student should consult with the potential research supervisor of the Department of Physics.

Please note that a maximum of 45 units at the 1000 level can be used towards the Bachelor of Science with Minor.
