Lecture and laboratory breakdown of courses is indicated at the end of each description. For example (3-1) indicates three credit hours lecture, one credit hour laboratory (1 credit hour of lab usually equals 2 contact hours). Courses in physics qualifying for the University Core Curriculum are so indicated by UCC.
Find a course:
ASTR 201 General Astronomy 4 hours. An introduction to the basic concepts in astronomy. Use of the telescope and exercises in uranography are stressed. No prerequisites: Sophomore standing. (3-1)UC
205 Intermediate Physics I 5 hours. An initial study of the phenomena and concepts of classical and modern physics in the areas of mechanics including energy and momentum principles, and heat and thermodynamics, with applications involving elementary calculus. An integrated laboratory serves to develop associated skills in measurement. Required of physics majors, minors, and preengineering students. Prerequisite: Mathematics 230. (4-1) UCC
206 Intermediate Physics II 5 hours. A continuation of Physics 205 in the areas of wave motion, acoustics, optics, electrostatics, circuit electricity, magnetism, and modern physics. Required of physics majors, minors, and preengineering students. Prerequisites: Physics 205, mathematics 230. Grade of C or better in PHYS 205. (4-1) UCC
207 Intermediate Physics I Excluding laboratory 4 hours. Physics 207 is identical with Physics 205 except the laboratory is excluded. This is intended for students who have previously acquired credit for the general physics laboratory by having completed course 175 or who have the equivalent in laboratory experience. (4-0) UCC
208 Intermediate Physics II Excluding laboratory 4 hours. Physics 208 is identical to Physics 206 except the laboratory is excluded. This is intended for students who have previously acquired credit for the general physics laboratory by having completed course 176 or who have the equivalent laboratory experience. (4-0) UCC
