PHYS 503 Electromagnetism (Graduate)

This theoretical and problem-solving course focuses on the development and application of the integral and differential forms of Maxwell’s equations from phenomenological observations, culminating in the electromagnetic wave equations. Topics include potential theory, static and dynamic electromagnetic field equations in vacuum and media, and electromagnetic waves with select applications. 

Note: This course is designed for those seeking the credentials required by many regional accrediting bodies in order to be able to teach advanced placement, concurrent early college, and community college Physics courses.

Prerequisite: a bachelor’s degree with a physics major or be state certified (in any state) to teach Physics at a secondary school level, and PHYE-501 or equivalent.
