Spring 2016 Physics Tutoring

Tutoring for all 100-level Physics courses is available, at no charge, from undergraduate Physics majors who staff the tutoring room, Engineering E109. The room is staffed Monday through Friday, 10:00-5:50, except on Wednesdays when tutoring ends at 4:50.

The Arts & Sciences Tutoring Program operates in the Great Hall of the TILT Building, Sunday through Thursday, 5:00-10:00. It covers PH 121, 122, 141, and 142 (and many other courses as well).

The Physics department does not maintain a list of private tutors, instead, we refer interested parties to the TILT private tutors list.

Spring 2016 Physics Courses

The following table lists Physics department courses being offered in the Spring 2016 semester. (Details concerning laboratory and recitation sections are not listed.)

If you are just interested in finding out what courses are generally available in the Fall, Spring or Summer, you should consult the CSU General Catalog. Note that the catalog does have some errors; in particular, PH 110 and 111 are not offered during the summer. And even though PH 142 is usually not available during the summer, it will be offered during Summer 2016.
