4.0 FCE - Breadth requirement: Options from Faculties other than the Faculty of Science (check Table I in 3.4 Program Requirements for ineligible courses). Of these 4.0 FCE, at least 1.0 FCE must be from the Faculty of Arts.

1.5 FCE - Options

*The recommended sequence for Mathematics courses in Physics and Astronomy is Mathematics 275 and 277. Students who complete Mathematics 267 will have to take a block week class for it to be equivalent to Mathematics 277.

**Notes**:

- Students who achieve a grade of "A-" or better in Physics 211 or 221 may use either of these courses in place of Physics 227.
- Suggested Physics or Science options are Physics 457, 501, 509, 543, Computer Science 491.
- It is strongly recommended that students take 1.0 FCE English to complete the 1.0 FCE Faculty of Arts requirement.
- The Mathematics 275, 277, 375, 377 sequence can be replaced with a sequence of Mathematics 249 or 265, Mathematics 267, Mathematics 177, Applied Mathematics 311, and Mathematics 367.
- Astrophysics 401/503 and 409/509 are taught in alternate years. It is important that students take these required courses when they are offered to avoid a delay in their graduation.
