Transition from lower division to upper division as a physics major

  1. Apr 22, 2013 #1
    I'm finishing up my 2nd year of college at a local CC transferring to university in the Fall working on a BS in astrophysics and math minor. I've worked out my schedule so far for the next 3 years (taking an extra year due to some general ed's not transferring) and it looks like for all but my last 2 semesters, I'll be looking at 9 units of upper division physics a semester; about 3 classes per.

    My question is, with the usual 3-4 course introductory calc-based physics sequence (mechanics, E&M, waves/optics/modern physics), how much does the difficulty ramp up once you reach upper division physics courses?
