Mode of Study
The Physics department offers a full range of physics coursework. The Physics Department offers a three semester calculus-based physics sequence (Physics 4A/4B/4C) that is designed for physics and engineering majors as well as other science majors. In addition, the Department offers an algebra-based physics sequence (Physics 2A/2B) which is appropriate for many science majors. We also offer Physics 10, Concepts in Physics, which provides a student the opportunity to explore the concepts of physics in an environment that requires minimal mathematics.
