-**Minimum Course Credits:** 20 credits total, including 14 in physics including either Physics 5001/2 or Physics 5011/2; 6 in or outside of Physics (but not in major sub-field) for a "​related fields"​ minor; 6 in one field outside physics for designated minor. If both Physics 5001/2 and Physics 5011/12 are taken, one of these sequences may be counted as supporting field credits.

 **Foreign Language Requirement:​** No requirement. However, the adviser may require reading knowledge of a particular language if justified by the nature of the thesis. **Foreign Language Requirement:​** No requirement.
