State Mandated Common Course Prerequisites - Science Education B.A./B.S., with Physics Concentration
Students wishing to transfer to USF should complete an A.A. degree at a Florida College System institution. Some courses required for the major may also meet General Education requirements thereby transferring maximum hours to the university.
If a student wishes to transfer without an A.A. degree and has fewer than 60 semester hours of acceptable credit, the student must meet the university’s entering freshman requirements including ACT or SAT test scores, GPA, and course requirements.
Transfer students are also required to comply with the immunization, foreign language, and continuous enrollment policies of the university.
Students should complete the following prerequisite courses at the lower level prior to entering the university. If these courses are not taken at a Florida College System institution, they must be completed before the degree is granted.
Unless stated otherwise, a grade of C- is the minimum acceptable grade in prerequisite courses.
- EDF X005 Introduction to Education and Field Experience - 3 credit hours
- MAC X311 Calculus I - 4 credit hours
- MAC X312 Calculus II - 4 credit hours
- MAC X313 Calculus III - 4 credit hours
- [(CHM X045 and CHM X045L) and (CHM X046 and CHM X046L)] or (CHM X045C and CHM X046C) - 8 total credit hours
- [(PHY X048 and PHY X048L) and (PHY X049 and PHYX049L)] or (PHY X048C and PHY X049C) - 8-10 total credit hours
A minimum of 6 semester hours with an international or diversity focus is required.
Eligible courses will be determined by the community college or university where the student is currently earning the Associate in Arts or baccalaureate degree. Foreign language courses may be used to meet this requirement.
FOR EDUCATION MAJORS: General education courses will be determined by the community college or university where the student currently is earning the Associate in Arts or baccalaureate degree, and will be published in the institution’s existing catalog and delineated in the Statewide Course Numbering System.
