PHYS 400 - Physics Portfolio

1 hour

Each student majoring in Physics may compile a portfolio spanning a minimum of four semesters (typically starting in the sophomore year) consisting of records of participation in professional activities as suggested by departmental faculty and as initiated by the student. Examples of activities include but are not limited to the following: attendance at club meetings, professional film showings, visiting-scientist seminar, and research review sessions, reading of journals and books, participation at professional meetings, preparation for graduate school and for employment, and lists of concepts or new ideas. The portfolio is reviewed at the end of each semester and must meet minimum criteria before the student’s registration for this course during the senior year. The grade earned for this credit will depend upon the persistence of the student in participation during his/her stay at Southern Adventist University and during summers, and upon the breadth and depth of the entries, and the extent to which the Department’s suggestions are implemented.
