PHYS 298 - Independent Study-Physics

Credits: 1-5
Students contract with an instructor to study topics not part of a regular class. Topics must be in physics or related fields.

Enrollment Requirement: One year of physics and instructor consent.

Course Outcomes:
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:

  1. Use appropriate reasoning to evaluate problems, make decisions, and formulate solutions, using calculus to develop a comprehensive and independent investigation of advanced topics in physics.
  2. Give reasons for conclusions, assumptions, beliefs, and hypotheses, using calculus to develop a comprehensive and independent investigation of advanced topics in physics.

Program Outcomes
  1. Use appropriate reasoning to evaluate problems, make decisions, and formulate solutions.
  2. Give reasons for conclusions, assumptions, beliefs, and hypotheses.


College-wide Outcomes
  • Critical Thinking - Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products. Critical thinkers routinely evaluate thinking processes and alter them, as necessary, to facilitate an improvement in their thinking and potentially foster certain dispositions or intellectual traits over time.
