Physics is the most fundamental of the natural sciences, and mathematics is the language of physics. This program develops, in parallel, experience with the central theoretical frame-works of physics and facility with the mathematical methods which form the foundation and tools of physics.
There is no minor in Mathematical Physics.
There is no General B.Sc. in Mathematical Physics.
BACHELOR OF SCIENCE PROGRAM IN MATHEMATICAL PHYSICS
See p. ??? for requirements which apply to all undergraduate degree programs.
The Honours program in Mathematical Physics is a sequence of courses offered by the Mathematics Department and the Department of Physics & Astronomy that compose an integrated whole. It is not available as a joint-major degree.
For information on individual courses see calendar entries for Mathematics and Physics & Astronomy.
