Physical Science: General Education Courses IOI PHYSICAL SCIENCE AND GEOGRAPHY SURVEY - LECTURE (4) Experimental facts and physical theory ap­ plicable in geology, meterology; 1nclud1ng the basic physical elements of geography such as climate, land forms, soils and natu­ ral vegetation and their patterns of world distr ibut ion. Either semester. I 02 PHYSICAL SCIENCE AND GEOGRAPHY SURVEY - LABORATO­ RY ( I ) Introductory laboratory work designed to accompany the lecture course. Must be taken concurrently or subsequent to the lecture. Three hours of laboratory. Either semester. Lab fee: $1 0. I IO ASTRONOMY (3) Descriptive general education course, de­ signed to acquaint the student with current state of knowledge of our solar system, the Milky Way, galaxies, quasars and cos­ mology. Th ree hours lecture, one hour laborat ory. Field trip fee : $5. 250 SCIENCE AND ORIGINS (3) A survey of basic scientific theories, the ir crucial experimental evidences, and their appl ications in physics , chemistry, geology and astronomy. Particu lar attention w ill be given to comparison of scientific theories of origi ns and bibl ical revelation. Physical Science for Science Majors 420 SPECIAL PROJECTS ( 1-3) Research or industrial internship. To pro­ vide practical experience in a field of the student's interest. Designed also for work ex perience off campus in local industry. . Prerequisite: junior or senior standi ng with consent 450 SPECIAL TOPICS IN PHYSICAL SCI­ ENCE (3) Varying course content accordi ng to stu­ dent and facu lty interest. Topics such as special relativity and nuclear physics rou­ tinely offered.
