*PHY 40099 (Senior Honors Thesis) or 40096 (Individual Investigation) may be substituted for PHY 40092 with curriculum advisor's permission. For PHY 40096 to substitute, a suitable research project should be selected.
**MATH 12001 (Algebra and Trigonometry) is a prerequisite for MATH 12002, which the student with sufficient background should bypass.
***Most Elementary I and II languages (American Sign Language, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Latin, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish) require 4 credit hours each. However, Elementary I and II for Arabic, Chinese, and Japanese require 5 credit hours each. Choosing these languages will increase the Foreign Language requirements to 10 credit hours and reduce the available number of General Electives by 2 credit hours.
****Two Diversity courses are required. One must be selected from the Kent Core program in either the Humanities & Fine Arts or Social Sciences. One Diversity course must address domestic (U.S.) issues and one must address global issues.
