Physical Science - PHY
College Physics II
PHY 131

An introduction to electricity and magnetism, wave motion, optics and basic modern physics for pre-professional, arts and sciences, and four year technology majors. This course is to be taken with PHY-130 to form a complete sequence.


Course Outline

Concepts of Physics
PHY 110

Phenomena-oriented course, emphasizing everyday life applications for the general student. Elementary mechanics, electricity, heat and modern physics are studied. This course counts towards the general education science requirement.

Course Outline

Astronomy
PHY 115

This course covers the history and future prospects of astronomy, the night sky, the Earth as compared to Venus and Mars, the death of stars, and cosmology. Emphasis is also placed on the influences that astronomy has had on culture.

Course Outline

College Physics I
PHY 130

This course covers Newtonian Mechanics, heat, fluid motion. Intended for students in the pre-professional areas, arts and sciences, and four year technology majors. It is not intended for students who plan to major (or minor) in physics or engineering.


Course Outline
