1. An Honours Physics Thesis (Physics 4501) can be used in place of the lab courses (Physics 4411 and 4412) or as an open elective. It cannot be used to replace Physics electives.
2. Students can switch to the Honours Physics program after second year.
3. Due to course rotation some courses may need to be taken out of sequence.
