Round most of the physics departments in the UK, where course details 
were available to the public via their websites.  Do check back - 
does your physics department still do it, or has it fallen by the 
wayside as students arrive knowing less physics, so more 'core' 
material has to be crammed into the 3 years of a Bachelor's degree?
