PHYS 2920 Sophomore Seminar

This course is required of all physics majors and is to be taken in the Fall semester of their second year. An overview of support services and leadership opportunities will be presented in order to facilitate development of an academic portfolio. These resources are expected to contribute to the student's successful completion of a BS in Physics at GC.

PHYS 2950 Special Topics

Prerequisite: Permission of department. Consideration of topics in which courses are not otherwise offered, but for which there is a current need at the freshman/sophomore level. This course is repeatable for credit.

1 - 4

PHYS 2999 Intro to Physics Research

Prerequisite: Department approval. PHYS 2999 will provide physics majors with a foundation in research methods. To this aim students will investigate areas ranging from exploring the physical literature to the understanding of physical research. This course is intended to serve as preparation for physical research (PHYS 4999). The subject of physical research is as diverse as the physics faculty and consequently the course content is expected to change at the discretion of the faculty member teaching the course. This course will count as an elective in the physics major. This course is repeatable for credit.
