Credits: (3)
Introduction to Planetary Science is an interdisciplinary algebra-based course that calls upon most of the physical sciences (Astronomy, Chemistry, Geology, Environmental Science, Meteorology, and Physics) in an attempt to understand the nature of our solar system. The goal of this course is to familiarize the science major and non-science major alike with the field of planetary science, and to introduce the history of space exploration to the interested student. This course presents the objects within our solar system and addresses the character of other solar systems within our galaxy. Prerequisite(s): MAT 087  or MAT 088 , and one of the following: SOC 103 , SCI 111 , GEO 151 , GEO 105 , GEO 106 , or permission of instructor.
