The Physics Transfer degree gives students a solid foundation in the basics of science with an emphasis on physics. Students completing the degree will be well prepared to transfer to a four-year program in physics at a college or university.
- Estimated Length of Program: 2 years
- Credential Awarded: Associate in Science in Engineering and Science Transfer
Physics is that branch of science, which is involved in the study of matter, energy, force and motion and the inter-relationship of these aspects of nature. The field of Physics incorporates mechanics, electromagnetism, optics, and thermodynamics. Modern physics now includes several new areas of investigation, such as, quantum mechanics, relativity and nuclear physics. The study of physics requires a high level of aptitude and experience in mathematics.
Students interested in pursuing higher education in the field of physics should follow the prescribed curriculum below.
Upon the successful completion of requirements for this program, the degree of Associate in Science in Engineering and Science Transfer will be awarded.
