Double Major

The physics department cooperates with the chemistry, molecular biology, mathematics and philosophy departments to offer a double major program to undergraduate students with a GPA of 3.00 and above. Students of all engineering departments can also apply for a double major program in Physics, provided that their GPA is 3.00 and above. This allows students to successfully complete a predetermined course list and earn a physics bachelor's degree.
Double Major Advisors: Prof. Özhan Özatay and Prof. Teoman Turgut.

 

Double Major Programs for Students of Physics

Any student who meets the requirements of the Double Major Program Directive  and the conditions determined by the departments can apply to the Double Major Programme.

 

PHYS-MATH

The applicant must have successfully completed the MATH 101, 102 and 201 courses. There should be no failed or repeated Mathematics courses. In addition, the weighted average of the grades taken in Mathematics courses should be 3.25/4.00.

Mass courses: MATH 101, 102, 201, 202

PHYS-CHEM

Required courses: CHEM 201, 202, 203, 204, 242, 244, 245, 308, 351, 363, 415

Also, the students must have 30 workdays of training in a chemistry-related facility.

 

Double Major Programs with Physics

XXX-PHYS (excluding PHIL)

Students must complete one of these course combinations:

PHYS 101, 102, 201, 202
PHYS 121, 201, 202
