PHYS 1303 - Introduction to Astronomy: Stars and Galaxies

3 sem. hrs. (2:2) TCCNS Equivalent: PHYS 1303
This is one of two courses in the introduction to astronomy sequence which emphasizes the nature of astronomical phenomena over the mathematical analysis of them. This course will focus mostly on the nature of light, the nature and evolution of stars, the material between the stars, the Milky Way Galaxy, external galaxies, and the structure and evolution of the universe as a whole. This course counts toward the natural science component of University Core Curriculum. Safety training given during a laboratory meeting early in the semester is required for continued participation in this course.
