If Materials represents the major of your PhD study, a maximum of two (2) 100 level courses can be used toward the major area requirements.
Selection of other courses not listed can be done with the approval of the Major Field Advisor and the Vice Chair for Graduate Study. You should prepare a written justification of your selection.
If Materials represents a minor of your PhD study, you should take at 2 courses from the Materials Core list. You may not double-count courses towards both the major and the minor requirements.
