1) UCSB Physics Undergraduate Learning Outcomes

 

2) Getting Help in the Physics Study Room (PSR)
All TAs for Physics hold office hours in the PSR (click here for schedule) (updated S19), Broida Hall, Room 1019, located on the first floor behind the elevator. The PSR is open from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm, Monday through Friday when classes are in session. PSR Fellows are more typically present during the evenings (from 6 pm - 8 pm), but this varies quarter to quarter.
 
During the summer, the PSR hours are reduced. There should be a TA in the PSR at all times, and any TA should be able to help you with problems in any Physics class. PSR hours over the summer are found here (updated for M19): PSR Hours for Summer Session A; PSR Hours for Summer Session B.
 

The PSR Fellows are not employed over the summer. The PSR will be closed on university holidays which can be found here.

At the beginning of each quarter, the PSR will open on the 3rd day of classes. This can be subject to change. The PSR will be open Finals week Monday through Thursday at varying times -- check the schedule for Finals Week Office Hours linked here (updated S19). These hours are subject to change, and will be updated accordingly.

The lower division PSR is intended for the use of students in the courses ASTRO 1, PHYS 2, PHYS 3L, PHYS 6AL,  and PHYS 6CL while the upper division PSR is intended for the use of students in the major series of courses (20, 23, 102, 103, 110A, 115A, 119A,120, 123A and 134L). If you cannot make it to the hours that match the courses you are enrolled in, you can attend the other set of PSR hours. However, please note that students from the designated courses will be given priority during that time.

11) OUTREACH OPPORTUNITIES

  • Physics Circus
    The Physics Department has sponsored this exciting K-12 outreach program since 1998. The Circus takes CSC equipment on the road to local schools for an action-packed learning experience led by enthusiastic Physics Department graduate students, undergraduate students, and faculty.

  • CSEP Science Center
    The CSC has been a valuable outreach asset at UCSB for over 25 years. The CSC contains a host of hands-on science equipment, allowing students to learn about a variety of topics in an interactive way. For example, there is equipment for student use that demonstrates conservation of momentum, flow of fluids, or principles of electricity.
