    2. CSE 595. Independent Study (4)
    3. PHYS 585. Internship in Physics (4)
    4. PHYS 595. Independent Study (4)
  2. Attainment of a minimum overall grade point average of 3.0 ("B") in all university courses attempted and a minimum grade point average of 3.5 in all computer science courses required by the major.
