Physics

Please note, it is not necessary to complete pre-requisites at Columbia University. Students are expected to meet pre-requisite requirements prior to registration.

Physics S1201 with S1291 laboratory and Physics S1202 with S1292 laboratory constitute a complete one-year course in general physics. These courses are designed primarily for premedical and other preprofessional and liberal arts students. Each laboratory course includes ten three-hour laboratory periods.

Physics S1201 and S1202 count toward the science requirement for most Columbia University undergraduates.
