Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THIS CLASS SERVES TO EXPOSE INTERESTED STUDENTS TO MODERN POPULAR TOPICS IN PHYSICS IN AN INFORMAL SETTING. THIS EXPOSURE ALSO SERVES TO ASSIST STUDENTS IN DECIPHERING WHAT SUB-DISCIPLINE (S) OF PHYSICS EXIST AND WHERE THEIR INTERESTS LIE IN PREPARATION FOR CHOOSING A TOPIC FOR SENIOR SEMINAR.  IT ALSO REPRESENTS OPPORTUNITY TO PRACTICE LITERATURE SEARCHES, AND ORAL PRESENTATIONS WITHIN THE SPECIFIC CONTEXT OF THE PHYSICS DISCIPLINE.   1 CR COURSE DOES NOT MEET GENED REQUIREMENT.
