PHYSC 120 - Physical Science Explorations

3 credits

An introduction to the physical sciences geared towards the non-science student. This class is an introduction to critical thinking and a survey of modern science wrapped into one package. Students will learn what science really is and how to survey the world through the lens of scientific scrutiny. A foundation in the ideas of physics, natural hazards, and climate change will be provided. While the course is largely conceptual, basic mathematical skills will be used.
