Three-Year Planning, Academics | Earlham College Skip to Content

We recommend that you take

  • Calculus sequence (Math 180 (Fall, 5 credits) and Math 280 (Spring, 5 credits))
  • Physics sequence (Physics 125 and Physics 235)
    • If you are interested in Chemical Engineering, you may want to take Chemistry 111 instead of physics
    • You could also take CS 128 instead of physics

The physics sequence is recommended for the first year because of alternate year courses that are required for some programs/majors. This schedule makes it very difficult to take a language in your first year, because of required Earlham Seminar courses. If you are uncertain whether you want to major in pre-engineering, we encourage you to take at least the calculus sequence and something that satisfies one of the general education distribution requirements. 

 

We recommend that you take

  • Math 320 (Differential equations, Fall, 3 credits) and Math 350 (Multivariate calculus, Spring, 4 credits)
  • Depending on what you took your first year, one of the following:
    • Physics 125 and 235
    • Chemistry 111
    • CS 128
  • If you have not placed out of it, you are encouraged to complete your language requirement
  • Economics 100 (offered every semester)
  • Physics 350: Electronics and Instrumentation (alternate years)

We recommend that you take

  • Math 310 (Linear Algebra, Fall, 3 credits)
  • Depending on what you took your first two years, one of the following:
    • Physics 125 and 235
    • Chemistry 111
    • CS 128
  • Economics 100 (offered every semester)
  • Physics 350: Electronics and Instrumentation (alternate years, requires Physics 125 and 235)
