  • Calculus: three semesters equivalent to MATH 221, 222, 234.
  • Physics: two semesters, calculus based, equivalent to PHYS 207-208 or 201-202.
  • Chemistry: one semester.

In addition, one computer science programming course such as C++, Fortran, or another approved language (or working programming knowledge in one of these languages) is required.

After the prerequisite courses have been completed, a Major Declaration Form must be completed by the student and authorized by the departmental undergraduate advisor. You should make an appointment to meet with Prof. Michael Morgan. You can reach him at 608-265-8159 or mcmorgan@wisc.edu. You will need to bring a current DARS report along when you meet with Prof. Morgan.
