PHY 114 Physical Science (GE) (4)
This course is an introduction to the basic scientific principles in Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy and Geology. Attendance at weekly lab sessions is required. During these lab sections, students will make observations, take data, make predictions and verify them using simple calculations.

PHY 117 Physics Fundamentals (GE) (3)
A qualitative treatment of the fundamental principles of classical and modern physics. Examines modern applications of technology and ideas that stem from these basic principles. Investigates how science and modern society influence each other. Satisfies the physical science without a lab requirement in the Core. Prerequisites: none.

PHY 126 Astronomy (GE) (3)
Study of the motion, physical properties, evolution, and environments of the sun, moon, planets, and stars. Includes observing activities.
