Physics

Course ID: PHYS 1010. 3 hours.
Course Title: Physical Science
Course Description: An introduction to the concepts and laws of physics, and how their applications can be used to understand the behavior of familiar phenomena and objects. Concepts are emphasized more than formulas and numbers.


Course ID: PHYS 1050. 3 hours.
Course Title: Physics of Music and Sound
