Mathematical Physics is a subject drawing its inspiration from both Mathematics and Physics, its main activity is characterized by those conceptual, mathematical frameworks which describe or explain physical phenomena. Accounting for the essential physical features, one builds theories of physical phenomena, in which those features are expressed in precise mathematical terms. The deductions of the theory are expected to be both mathematically precise and to capture some aspect of physical reality. Mathematical Physics extends to the deepest, most difficult and fascinating realms of both Mathematics and Physics. This program was designed by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and Physics and Engineering Physics to meet the needs of students interested in this interdisciplinary subject.
Students in this program are required to consult annually with the program representatives: J. Szmigielski, Mathematics & Statistics, Tel: 306-966-6093, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org and R. Dick, Physics & Engineering Physics, Tel: 306-966-6443, E-mail: email@example.com.
Mathematical Physics is available only in the B.Sc. Honours program. A student who does not meet Honours standards will have the option of completing a B.Sc. Four-year in Mathematics or in Physics.
Residency Requirements in the Major
To receive a degree in Mathematical Physics, students must complete at least two-thirds of the following coursework (to the nearest highest multiple of 3 credit units) from the University of Saskatchewan.
- Minimum requirements in Major Requirement C6.
See Residency for additional details.
Bachelor of Science Honours (B.Sc. Honours) - Mathematical Physics
Students interested in entering an Honours program should consult advisors in the department concerned before registering for their second year. Of the 120 credit units required for the B.A. Honours degree, at least 66 credit units must be at the senior level. Application for admission to Honours is not considered until successful completion of at least 60 credit units with a Cumulative Weighted Average of at least 70% overall and at least 70% in the subject of Honours. For further details, please see the Academic Information and Policies section.
C1 Science Requirement (minimum 15 credit units)
Choose 9 credit units to be selected from the following areas such that no more than 6 credit units are from any one area:
6 credit units in CMPT is strongly recommended (either CMPT 111.3 and CMPT 115.3 or CMPT 116.3 and CMPT 117.3, depending upon student preferences), both for programmatic and conformity considerations. Including these classes facilitates a range of program options; for example, 6 credit units in CMPT is required for B.Sc. Honours Mathematics and 3 credit units in CMPT is required for B.Sc. Honours Physics, programs closely related to this one.
