Award Plan(s)
PHYS 1401 - General College Physics I (4-3-3)
Study of principles and applications of concepts in mechanics, energy, heat, wave motion, and sound. PHYS 1401/1402 is the standard algebra-based physics sequence and may, in addition, serve as a prerequisite for the calculus-based PHYS 2425/2426 sequence for students who have not taken high school physics.
 
 
Course Fee: $50.00 

Skills: G Prerequisites: Grade of C or better in MATH 1314 or equivalent. Course Type: T
* Course has been modified since print catalog publishing date. Last Updated: 1/14/2014
 
PHYS 1402 - General College Physics II (4-3-3)
Study of principles and applications of concepts in electricity and magnetism, geometric and physical optics, and modern physics. This is the second half of the algebra-based PHYS 1401/1402 sequence.
 
Course Fee: $50.00 

Skills: G Prerequisites: Grade of C or better in PHYS 1401. Course Type: T
