Yearly Undergraduate Course Offerings

The table shown below lists the standard course offerings from the Physics Department over the course of a year.  We do not guarantee to offer the courses as shown but use this table as a guide or model and display it to the public on that basis. The letter B denotes courses offered on the Burnaby campus; S denotes Surrey. TBD means "to be decided." Courses marked with a dagger  or double-dagger  are not offered every year, but rather every other year. The dagger denotes even-numbered years, and the double-dagger denotes odd. (n.b. The Spring semester has a different year number than the Fall.)
