2 semester graduate courses vs 1 semester

  1. Apr 18, 2013 #1
    I've looked at different schools degree requirements and noticed some schools require 2 semesters of quantum mechanics and electromagnetic theory, while others just have one. Could the difference in out comes be huge? If you do a masters in a school that requires one would it be harder to get into a PhD program at a different school?

    Are the requirements really just 1 QM/EM course? I've seen it a few places where they don't separate the two semesters of the class and just list it as one requirement (and it took some digging to realize what they really meant).

    It states the classes are only offered during the spring and there is not a part 2 listed so I'm taking that it is only a one semester sequence for both QM and EM.
