Is this a reasonable curriculum for Math Major/Physics Minor

  1. Jul 8, 2010 #1
    Hello. I am new to these forums. This is a curriculum I developed for my junior and senior year of a Math Major with a Physics Minor. It would be great to get some opinions from people who have already completed math and physics programs. These course number and credit counts are from the University of Minnesota.
