Several new undergraduate courses available starting summer 2021.

Starting summer 2021, the department of Physics and Astronomy has several new courses available. Courses Phys 131X, 131L, 132X, 132L, 231X, 231L will replace Phys 111, 112 and 221. PHYS 111, 112 and 221 have been split into separate lecture and laboratory courses. For example, PHYS 131X includes the lecture and recitation components of 111, and 131L is the lab component. The content of the new courses remains the same, but they offer greater flexibility and choice to students. The lab course can be taken concurrently with the lecture course, or after it. Online options are available in some semesters.
