## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey everyone, sorry in advance for the lengthy post (at least vertically). In a nutshell, I've already received a bachelor's degree in political science, but have decided to go back to undergrad to receive a physics degree since it's my passion. Since I'm already behind schedule, I'm hoping to receive my degree in 2 years, and I'll be able to do so if I follow the following schedule... but is it too demanding/too much to handle?

General Physics II

Calc III

Differential Equations

Computer programming (learning basics of C++)

Intermediate Mechanics

Intermediate Modern Physics

Intermediate Lab

Mathematical Physics

Thermal Statistical Physics

Intermediate E&M

Quantum Mechanics I

Advanced Lab

Particle and Nuclear Physics

Linear Algebra

Quantum Mechanics II

Advanced Dynamics

Optics

Complex Analysis (Or another useful math class)

Also, on a side note, I'm contemplating a degree in math as well, which would require basically taking 3 math classes in each summer following these semesters... any thoughts on that? I'm eventually hoping to go to grad school. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated... thanks. Also keep in mind that I'm hoping to find research positions with professors or something similar, which would take up some of my time as well.
