Sample Curriculum Planners
Below are sample semester planners for the most popular Physics options. They assume initial placement into MATH 165 and ENGL 120 and do not take into account any transfer credit. They are designed to allow a well-prepared and motivated student to graduate in four years.
Choose the academic year that corresponds to when you entered NDSU or declared Physics as your major. Be sure to meet with your academic adviser regularly to plan out each semester in detail.
