# Mathematics and Physics, BS

Mathematics and physics have been linked since antiquity. By combining physics and mathematics you can take closely related courses in each discipline, such as statistical mechanics and stochastic processes, mechanics and dynamical systems, thermodynamics and Fourier Series, and quantum mechanics and partial differential equations. The two departments jointly offer a course in mathematical methods in physics.

Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified and complete any additional courses needed beyond specific college and major requirements to satisfy graduation credit requirements.

## University-Wide Requirements
