A.S. Degree

The program is designed to provide students the opportunity to obtain a degree upon successful completion of the requirements of a physics transfer major. Upon completion of the program requirements, the student will acquire the ability to use and develop problem solving strategies that apply to physical concepts involving mechanics, thermodynamics, sound, 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. Competency will be assessed by evaluating the student's ability to quantitively and qualitatively determine the results of physical situations.

Preparation for the Transfer Major

For information on specific university major requirements, please obtain a transfer curriculum guide sheet in the Counseling Services Center, consult with your counselor, or visit the Transfer Center. You may use the transfer major requirements to help you fulfill your associate degree requirements.
