Courses Advanced courses vs electives

  1. Oct 26, 2008 #1
    Would it be more beneficial to take graduate courses in your B.S. major in place of electives than taking physics classes? I would like to take as many physics classes as possible but if it will help me get into graduate school or be a better engineer i would want to take graduate courses

    Electives give you a broader view of the entire subject, whether it is engineering of science. I would not discount them on your graduate application. Another point can be made, most grad schools do not give you credit for prior graduate coursework, they make you take in over so they are satisfied you know it.
