Credit Hour Requirements: A total of 120 semester credit hours is required for graduation; 75 to 76 of these (depending on choice of courses) are required within the Applied Physics major. Forty upper-division credit hours are required (courses numbered 3000 and above); 32 to 33 of these are required within the Applied Physics major.
All Applied Physics majors are strongly encouraged to meet with the chair at least annually for course and program advisement. Call 801-626-6163 for more information or to schedule an appointment. Note that because most courses have prerequisites and some advanced courses are offered only in alternate years, careful planning is essential.
Declare your program of study. There are no special admission or application requirements for the Applied Physics major.
Select a minimum of nine additional credit hours from Physics courses numbered 3000 and above. Upper-division courses in closely related disciplines may also satisfy this requirement. In all cases, elective courses must be approved by the department chair.
