The degree is designed for students planning to transfer with a major in astronomy. The student will acquire the ability to use problem solving strategies that apply to physical concepts involving mechanics, thermodynamics, sounds, light, electricity and magnetism, and modern physics. Laboratory activities will provide the student with a foundation in measurement and analysis techniques necessary to test, understand and apply physical concepts. Competencies will be assessed by evaluating the student's ability to quantitatively and qualitatively determine the results of physical situations.
