*Area of Concentration = 12 units in one other subject. A course in computer applications must be included in physics electives, area of concentration, or electives. Twelve of the 51 units of general education are met by required courses listed here (in areas A2, B1, B3, and B4). [Courses listed above meet requirements in the major, in supporting courses for the major, in general education, and for electives. Descriptions of some courses are available on the web].
