Policy on Dual-Listed Courses
Students who wish to take "dual listed" (e.g., PHY 420/620) courses for graduate credit (PHY 620-level) are required to perform alternate work that reflects both quantitative and qualitative advances over the undergraduate requirements (PHY 420-level), such as additional scholarly readings, more rigorous research, and/or more comprehensive examinations. The alternate work required for graduate credit will be stated in the syllabi for all "dual listed" courses.
1. When additional readings are assigned, they should involve students with scholarly literature related to the subject of the course.
2. When graduate research is assigned, it should adhere to rigorous methodological strategies, emphasize primary source material where appropriate, and conform to accepted standards of scholarly style, organization, and content.
3. Graduate examinations may require additional or different questions and should require abstract thinking and theoretical assimilation of the course material.
