Physics majors must also take Multivariable Calculus (or Multivariable and Vector Calculus) and Applied Ordinary Differential Equations. A physics major may complete up to two courses in mathematics or cognate sciences at the advanced level in lieu of advanced physics electives, but prior approval of the department at least one semester before his or her expected graduation is required. Completion of the BA in physics fulfills the field of knowledge requirement for eligibility to apply for certification from the Massachusetts State Department of Education.
