Physics and Astronomy Graduate Courses

For short descriptions of the courses offered by the Department, refer to the Graduate Bulletin. for course instructors and times: follow link from the Registrar's class listings, or search on SOLAR (note: Select the correct semester. We are on "West Campus"). The list below links to some of the WEB pages maintained by the professors teaching the courses, or to a course syllabus. Links to the webpages of the courses in Spring 2017 will mostly become available during January 2017. The tentative course schedule for Spring 2017 is available on the Department webpage. If you would like to know the course content, please consult the webpages of earlier years or send an email to the instructor. The learning goals of all graduate courses can be found here. Please see the bottom of this webpage for University wide rules that apply to all courses.

UNIVERSTIY WIDE REQUIREMENTS AND GUIDELINES

Below are university wide requirements and guidelines for students and faculty that apply to all of the above courses.

Academic Integrity

Each student must pursue his or her academic goals honestly and be personally accountable for all submitted work. Representing another person's work as your own is always wrong. Any suspected instance of academic dishonesty will be reported to the Academic Judiciary. For more comprehensive information on academic integrity, including categories of academic dishonesty, please refer to the academic judiciary website.

Electronic Communication

Email to your University email account is an important way of communicating with you for this course. For most students the email address is firstname.lastname@stonybrook.edu, and the account can be accessed . *It is your responsibility to read your email received at this account.*

For instructions about how to verify your University email address see this . You can set up email forwarding using instructions here. If you choose to forward your University email to another account, we are not responsible for any undeliverable messages.

Religious Observances

See the policy statement regarding religious holidays at this address. Students are expected to notify the course professors by email of their intention to take time out for religious observance. This should be done as soon as possible but definitely before the end of the add/drop period. At that time they can discuss with the instructor(s) how they will be able to make up the work covered.

Disabilities

If you have a physical, psychiatric/emotional, medical or learning disability that may impact on your ability to carry out assigned course work, you should contact the staff in the Disability Support Services office [DSS], 632-6748/9. DSS will review your concerns and determine, with you, what accommodations are necessary and appropriate. All information and documentation of disability is confidential.

Students who require assistance during emergency evacuation are encouraged to discuss their needs with their professors and Disability Support Services. For procedures and information go to the website

Critical Incident Management

Stony Brook University expects students to respect the rights, privileges, and property of other people. Faculty are required to report to the University Police and the Office of University Community Standards any serious disruptive behavior that interrupts teaching, compromises the safety of the learning environment, and/or inhibits studentsŐ ability to learn. See more here.
