Completing the Major:  Senior Exit

The comprehensive exit requirement is normally satisfied by the submission and approval of a thesis.  To satisfy the comprehensive requirement via a thesis, PHYS 182 is required.  Note that successful completion of PHYS 182 and the senior thesis satisfies the Disciplinary Communication requirement.

In special cases, minor modifications of these requirements may be granted to suit the specific program of a particular student.  Before embarking on a program needing such waivers, students should discuss their plans with a physics advisor and seek approval by petition from the Physics Department office.
