Planned Schedule of Upper Level Physics Classes


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.
