Schedule of Courses

For all official information, course descriptions, and pre- and co-requisites, please consult the Miami General Bulletin. The Physics Department offers many other 400/500-level courses by demand. If there is interest, contact the department as soon as possible. Scheduling of the course must take place prior to the opening of student registration. Also, course numbers for research and independent study are not listed here. Consult the bulletin or your advisor for information.

NOTE: Some upper-level courses may be offered in the alternate semester of the academic year. Check with your advisor to plan your schedule.

Schedule of Graduate Courses

Graduate credit is given for courses offered at the 500- and 600-level. Courses at the 500-level are designed for students requiring advanced undergraduate material that they have not covered, prior to entering 600-level course work. For all official information and course descriptions, please consult the Miami General Bulletin.

NOTE: Occasionally, some courses may be offered in the alternate semester of the academic year. Check with your advisor to plan your schedule.
