When I was in college (back in the sixties), competing in general educationI think it's a selective thing. It's pretty much only in physics and
classes with majors in that field was the rule, rather than the exception.
I took a year of economics with economics majors, biology with biology
majors, English with English majors. I did not find it hard to compete.
maybe chemistry that special courses for non-majors are offered.
Although too many of these courses are just dumbed-down traditional
courses, I think a carefully constructed course that emphasizes the
cultural aspect of science in general and physics in particular is
more appropriate for non majors than a straight engineering physics
