  • All online physics courses are available each semester, including summer session. 

College Physics

PHYS 211 College Physics I is an algebra-based physics course designed to provide a general, conceptual understanding of the principles of physics related to motion, energy, properties of matter, and thermodynamics.  

PHYS 212 College Physics II is an algebra-based physics course designed to provide a general, conceptual understanding of the principles of physics related to thermodynamics, waves, sound, electricity, magnetism, light, and optics. 

Students should have completed Math 103 College Algebra and Math 105 Trigonometry before enrolling in PHYS 211. Students should have already completed PHYS 211 before enrolling in PHYS 212.

PHYS 211 College Physics I, PHYS 211L College Physics I Lab, and PHYS 212 College Physics II are availble each semester online.  PHYS 212L College Physics II Lab will be available in May 2016 online.  

 

University Physics 

PHYS 251 University Physics I is a calculus based physics course designed to provide Science and Engineering majors with a deeper understanding of the principles of physics related to motion, energy, properties of matter, and thermodynamics. This course is intended as an alternative to PHYS 211, not sequential to it. Upon transferring to another NDUS institution, the four course credits obtained in taking this course at MSU may be reduced to three credits.

PHYS 252 University Physics II is a calculus based physics course designed to provide Science and Engineering majors with a deeper understanding of the principles of physics related to thermodynamics, waves, sound, electricity, magnetism, light, and optics.  

Students should have completed Math 165 Calculus I or higher before enrolling in PHYS 251 or 252.
