Section: 01  
Crosslisting: PHYS 524
Course Cluster: Integrated Design, Engineering & Applied Science Minor

This course covers the classical field theory of electricity and magnetism. The core of the course covers electrostatics and magnetostatics with emphasis on both physical insight and the partial differential equations that describe these fields. We then cover electrodynamics to complete Maxwell's equations and to derive the elementary properties of electromagnetic radiation.
