Course Descriptions


Course Types:

Physical Science

PHY 105   Environmental Geology (3)

Examination of geologic processes and hazards that influence human activities and the geologic aspects of pollution and waste-disposal.

Course Type(s): On-Campus Hybrid

PHY 107   Environmental Geology Laboratory (1)

Corequisites: PHY 105-Environmental Geology.

Exercises focus on environmental and social issues relevant to environmental problems and the effects of human interaction in geologic processes.

Course Type(s): On-Campus

PHY 111   Introduction to Physical Science (3)

Introduces the basics in a variety of scientific disciplines including classical (Newtonian) physics, energy, matter and heat, wave behavior, electricity and magnetism, modern physics (the atom and nucleus), geology, and astronomy. Basic high school math/algebra is utilized in portions of this course.

PHY 113   Introduction to Physical Science Laboratory (1)

Corequisites: Preceded or accompanied by PHY 111.

Laboratory reinforces topics discussed in Physical Science lecture (PHY 111) by utilizing hands-on experimentation.

Course Type(s): On-Campus

PHY 125   Introduction to Physical Geology (3)

Introduces a basic understanding of topics in physical geology including the unifying theory of plate tectonics, discussions of Earth materials (rocks and minerals), internal processes (volcanism, earthquakes), surface processes (surface and ground water, weathering, erosion), and geologic time.  Campus outings will be incorporated to emphasize Missouri geology.

Course Type(s): On-Campus Hybrid

PHY 127   Introduction to Physical Geology Laboratory (1)

Corequisites: Preceded or accompanied by PHY 125.

Laboratory reinforces topics discussed in Physical Geology lecture (PHY 125) by utilizing practical experimentation and observations.
