1110 TOPICS IN PHYSICS (1-4 hours)
A study of selected topics.

1501 ASTRONOMY (3 hours)
A study of the characteristics, composition, and structure of the extraterrestrial universe, with emphasis on understanding the physical laws which govern its behavior.

1521 METEOROLOGY (3 hours)
A study of the properties, structure, and dynamics of the lower atmosphere. The physical laws which govern weather and climate will be studied.

2521 GENERAL PHYSICS I (4 hours)
An algebra-based introduction to Newtonian mechanics, conservation laws, motion, energy, and mechanical and thermal properties of matter. This course emphasizes quantitative problem-solving that requires mathematical skills comparable to MATH Pre-Calculus, Physics Lecture and laboratory.

2522 GENERAL PHYSICS II (4 hours)
An algebra-based introduction to wave motion, sound, light, electricity, magnetism, and nuclear processes. This course emphasizes quantitative problem-solving that requires mathematical skills comparable to MATH 1516 Pre-Calculus, Lecture and laboratory.

4301 INDEPENDENT STUDY (1-6 hours)
A research project in the area of Physics carried out by the student under the direction of one of the members of the Chemistry and Physics Department faculty. Prerequisite: permission of Instructor.
