    Too many people get to their third or fourth year and realize that another subject really captivates them and they would have discovered this earlier if they had just explored more courses Maybe take biology and chemistry both freshman year instead of waiting until senior year Maybe take an advising seminar first term or use your extra nine units second term to try out another subject Take home message explore Still wondering what to do Check out physics seminars e g Thursday colloquia and events SPS events Freshman Open House etc Most importantly go find a course 8 undergrad and talk to them More than likely that ll help you decide Good luck Should I take 8 02 or 8 022 8 022 is a great class if you want to learn more theory and derivations than in 8 02 It will give you the opportunity to see the connection between electricity and magnetism If you did well in 8 01 and wished it had gone more in depth 8 022 might be for you If in doubt talk to the teaching staff and sit in on both classes for a little bit Note that if you disliked TEAL that isn t enough reason to take 8 022 What s the difference between the flexible and focused degree options On your diploma there s no difference whatsoever The flexible option formerly known as 8B exists so that you can more easily double major or explore another subject such as astrophysics or biophysics There are fewer required classes in course 8 for the flexible option notably Junior Lab 8 13 and 8 14 The flexible option can also be a good idea for those who would like to substitute regular classes with grad classes or for those who are more theoretically inclined How do I get a Physics UROP While a full answer can be found on our UROP page the important thing to remember is that the O in UROP stands for opportunity Contact professors whose research interests you Don t settle for just any UROP find something that you will truly enjoy and learn from Advising Upon declaring physics as your major you will be assigned an advisor who is a professor in the Physics department Advisors are assigned based on your responses on a preference sheet from the department The sheet asks about the type of advisor you would like such as an experimentalist or a theorist etc When filling out the form and even considering advising in general remember this For many people their academic advisor is not their key source of information about what classes to take etc Thus it s a good idea to talk to other students other professors or staff Thus it may be helpful to request an academic advisor with interests similar to your own so that your advisor can help you find a UROP by asking colleagues or address concerns specific to their field If you think there s a specific
