How large are undergraduate physics classes at UCC?


The first two required courses (PHY 101 and PHY 102) are large, approaching 1000 students in each course each semester. In these two courses, students divided into smaller groups based on their majors and each group is assigned to a lecturer.  In addition to physics majors, these two courses are populated with engineering physics, chemistry, biology, biochemistry, computer science and other majors. Once past these two courses, physics majors can expect to have 25-35 other students enrolled in the required physics courses.
