Courses

In addition to the introductory calculus-based physics sequence, our advanced courses cover a broad spectrum of physics. You can take Conceptual Modern Physics, Electricity & Magnetism, Mechanics, Optics, Digital Electronics and Instrumentation, Topics in Modern Physics, Mathematical Methods of Physics, and Physical Chemistry.  And you can do a directed study in any area of physics which interests you.
