### Sample four-year schedules for
completing Physics Major

Version 1: for students with strong physics/math background (e.g.,
4 or 5 on AP Phys C Mech and AP Calc BC).

Version 2: for students who have not yet taken AP Phys C Mech
with score of 4 or 5.

Version 3: for students who are not able to complete Math 50 and
Phys 40 series (formerly 50 series) in Freshman year.

Alternate Math sequence for students who cannot take entire Math
50 series in one year.

OVERSEAS STUDY

Contrary to rumor, Stanford physics undergraduates do in fact
have the option of studying abroad for one quarter or even a
whole year. The physics curriculum is flexible, and while these
four-year physics plans are straightforward, it is not the only
viable order in which to take the required physics courses.
Students planning to take the GRE Subject Test in physics in the
senior year should complete Physics 130 and 131 by the end of the
junior year. However, other students, including those planning to
co-term in another department, have the leisure of postponing the
130 series. Physics 107 and 108 may also reasonably be postponed,
availing the entire junior year to study abroad. While spring
quarter of the junior year is a popular quarter in which to take
Physics 108, moving the class to the senior year opens spring
quarter in the junior year for studying abroad. Alternatively,
taking Physics 170 and 171 concurrently with 130 and 131 in the
junior year leaves the first two quarters of the senior year open
to study abroad

The
Stanford Overseas Studies Program runs nine foreign campuses
in the autumn, winter and spring quarters while students remain
directly enrolled at Stanford. Students considering this option
should visit the OSP office on the first floor of Sweet Hall, as
well as discuss how a quarter abroad might fit into their
particular academic program with their major or academic advisor.
