Here is a tentative schedule of upper-level physics courses for the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 academic years.  We will finalize the 2017-2018 offerings by December 2016.   This schedule should be used for students planning to take a junior year away from Colby. Some courses are scheduled on an alternating or occasional basis. Students should consult with their advisor about which courses to take to fulfill the major or honors major. As soon as the schedule for 2017-2018 is complete, it will noted here.
