A "T" located to the left of the available semester indicates transfer to Murray State University, Southeast Missouri State University, and Southern Illinois University-Carbondale as per articulation agreements. These courses will also transfer to most public four-year institutions in the state of Illinois.


PHY 116 COLLEGE PHYSICS I

T P1 900L Fall

This course is an introductory course in basic physics for science majors with no previous exposure to physical laws, methods, and applications that uses hands-on approach to problem solving in mechanics, dynamics, sound and heat. This is a non-calculus based course for any science major, including (but not limited to biology, pre-med, pre-dental (nursing) or for student interested in how the world interacts with physics.

Credit: 4 hours - Three lecture and two lab hours per week.

Prerequisite(s Geometry-Mat 042, Intermediate Algebra-MAT 114 with a grade of "C" or better, or equivalent math background in high school. Pre-calculus-MAT 115 or Trigonometry-MAT 118 are recommended.


PHY 117 COLLEGE PHYSICS II

T Spring

This is an introductory level course emphasizing two main areas of study. One area is electricity and magnetism, which will include electric and magnetic field, direct current and alternating currents and interrelationships. The second area is electromagnetic waves, light, optics, wave theory, sound, and modern physics.

Credit: 4 hours - Three lecture and two lab hours per week.

Prerequisite(s): Introductory Physics I-PHY 116 or equivalent, Pre-calculus-MAT 115 or Trigonometry-MAT 118


PHY 120 INTRODUCTION TO REAL WORLD PHYSICS

T P1 900 Spring

This course is a non-mathematical approach to the study of physical phenomena, investigation of mechanics, properties of matter, heat, sound, electricity, magnetism, light, relativity, and atomic and nuclear physics is presented.

Credit: 3 hours - Three lecture hours per week.

Prerequisite(s): None


PHY 216 UNIVERSITY PHYSICS I

T P2 900L Fall

This course is a calculus-based course in the physics of mechanics, dynamics, heat and sound. Topics include equilibrium, motion, momentum, work and energy, heat, thermodynamics, and wave motion.

Credits: 4 hours - Three lecture and two lab hours per week.

Prerequisite(s): Introduction to Physics I-PHY 116 or equivalent and Calculus I-MAT 117.


PHY 217 UNIVERSITY PHYSICS II

T Spring
