SCHEDULE OF UPPER LEVEL COURSES

The upper-level physics courses are typically offered on either a 2-semester or 4-semester rotation. The following is a preliminary list of what courses will be offered each semester. NOTE THAT THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Check with Dr. Luttermoser, Dr. Giroux, or Dr. Smith for any changes.

Note that Tech Physics I is only offered in the Fall semester, and Tech Physics II is only offered in the Spring semester. General Physics I and II are both offered every semester, as are Astronomy I and II.    The Variable Stars course (ASTR 3970) is offered each semester as needed; enrollment in this class is limited and is by permission of the instructor only (Dr. Gary Henson; ).

NEW!!  Starting in Fall 2014, the Advanced Physics Lab (PHYS 3410) will be offered each semester.   Enrollment in that class is limited, with preference being given to graduating seniors.   To enroll in that class, contact Dr. Luttermoser () to be put on a list.
