Important note to students taking PHYS/ASTR courses in fall 2020:

All Physics/Astronomy lectures and labs will be given online next semester (September-December 2020); none will be given in person. With the exception of students who have already been cleared to do project work in a lab, there is no academic reason for any student in an undergraduate physics or astronomy course to come to campus or be in Vancouver. Upper-level courses given by other departments may be delivered face-to-face; students should check in each case.

Courses

The following links list all the Astronomy and Physics courses that are published in the UBC Academic Calendar and PHAS Department webpages. The overriding authority, whenever course discrepancies are found, is the UBC Academic Calendar. Note not all courses are offered each Academic Session, nor indeed each year.
