Elementary Analysis I - Introduction to real analysis including convergence of sequences, infinite series, differentiation and integration, and sequences of functions. Students are expected to do proofs - Using Ross' Elementary Analysis: The Theory of Calculus book.

Classical Mechanics I - One dimensional motion and oscillations; three-dimensional motion, non-inertial coordinates, conservation laws, and Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamics; rigid body motion and relativity - Using Marion and Thornton's Classical Dynamics

Observational Astronomy - Telescopes and astronomical observations, imaging with CCD detectors and image processing techniques. Photometry and spectroscopy of stars, galaxies, and quasars. Advanced imaging techniques such as deconvolution, adaptive optics, and interferometry - Using Observational Astronomy by Birney

Physical Chemistry I - Principles of quantum chemistry with applications to nuclear motions and the electronic structure of the hydrogen atom - Using Quanta, Matter, and Change by Depaula, Atkins and Friedman

Experimental Physics Lab - Optics: lenses, mirrors, polarization, lasers, optical fibers, interference, spectra.

Problem Solving in Math Seminar - Develops ability in analytical thinking and problem solving, using problems of the type found in the Mathematics Olympiad and the Putnam Mathematical Competition. Students taking the course in fall will prepare for and take the Putnam examination in December.

Seems like a lot, but the last two are 2 units a piece (half a class)
