Physics

Physics includes the study of physics and astronomy. All classes are transferable to other schools in the state system of higher education (the only exception is PHYS 2710, which is not transferable to the U of U) and most other universities and colleges.


Physics classes are offered at three levels:

  1. General survey classes for fulfilling a General Education requirement for non-technical students;
  2. A non-calculus, two-semester series for professionals and technicians (other than engineers); and
  3. A three-semester series of calculus-based physics for engineering students.

Preparation Note

Students who need to take preparatory classes to meet the requirements of first semester courses should plan on extra time to complete the program.


Prerequisites

It is the student's responsibility to examine each course description for details of prerequisite classes. Those prerequisites must be satisfied before the designated class may be taken.
