PHYS 1830 - Perspective on the Universe
(3 Credits, Lab Required)
phys 1830

This general interest course is a qualitative course on the concepts and discoveries in astronomy. Topics may vary from year to year and could include Life on Other Worlds or Astronomy in the News. These themes are used to give the student a qualitative astronomy background ranging from planets and stars to galaxies and cosmology. A few special sessions at Glenlea Observatory and the Lockhart Planetarium introduce the student to scientific method. Although simple arithmetic and trigonometry will be used occasionally, this is a descriptive course.
