Lab: 54-108
Corequisite: PHYS 1 or PHYS 2AG or PHYS 4A (May have been taken previously)

In order to offer selected students recognition for their academic interests and ability and the opportunity to explore their disciplines to greater depth, the various departments from time to time offer special projects courses. The content of each course and the methods of study vary from semester to semester and depend on the particular project under consideration. Student must have instructor's authorization before enrolling in this class. Students who repeat this course will meet with the instructor and make individual contracts of a more advanced nature to ensure that proficiencies are enhanced.
