Quantum physics over the summer

  1. May 22, 2010 #1
    Hello, I was hoping someone can help with some information. I was in my last year, and I needed to pass quantum mechanics to graduate. Unfortunately, I got a failing grade and will have to wait till next spring to retake it. I was wondering if anyone knows a college that offers a quantum mechanics course over the summer? Thanks.

    Nope, I don't know any schools that offer advanced physics courses over the summer. That's hard enough during the year, much less having to shove it all into 6 weeks. My (large state) university only offers introductory physics classes over the summer, nothing advanced, and I don't know any schools that do. How about an independent study?

    I kinda found a Quantum course at Howard University over the summer, but I don't know if that will transfer. I am really just looking for other options right now and independent study might be one of them. I was wondering how that might work?

    You'd have to convince a professor to take you on over the summer or semester to basically teach you or guide you in learning the material. And you'd have to convince the school to accept it instead of QM. Also, it's unlikely the professor would get paid to do that, so you'd have to find one that really likes you.

    Or you can just take some online course based on what you need.

    Do you know any online courses because I couldn't find any. Is there such thing as an online college that offers advanced physics course? If there is, that would help out a lot.
