The American Association of Physics Teachers recommends students planning to do physics graduate work take Physics 3301, 3331, and Physics 4363. Those students who contemplate graduate studies in other disciplines will want to choose appropriate minors. For students who plan to work in industry or do graduate work in engineering, the Applied Physics specialization area is recommended.
