Note: Mathematics and foreign language placement is usually done during Summer Orientation. Some students may start with Calculus II and/or need only one or two foreign language courses. Also, MTH 347 is not a requirement for the BS Physics, but the Mathematics thematic sequence can be satisfied by completing MTH 347, along with MTH 222 & 252, both requirements for this degree.
