Physics in the Science Core

The Physics Department offers several courses for non-science majors seeking to satisfy natural science core curriculum requirements: Liberal Arts Physics, Planetary and Stellar Astronomy, and Physics of Music. These courses emphasize an appreciation of the basic laws, overall structure, and beauty of the physical universe. In addition, as part of the natural science core, these courses discuss the scientific method, and stress the importance of methodological competence as well as ethics in forming critical judgments on technically oriented societal issues.
