Why Study Physics?

Studying physics will enable students to understand basic phenomena in nature, from the dropping of a ball to the behavior of matter at subatomic to galactic levels. Courses in physics provide students with a foundation for more specialized and advanced areas of study in a baccalaureate program. Upon completing the program, students will be prepared for transfer to a four-year institution where they can further their education in areas such as  physics, education, engineering, biophysics, or related areas.

Degree offered:

Associate in Science (AS): Liberal Arts and Sciences: Mathematics and Science

The AS degree is recommended for students who plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree in science, engineering or mathematics.
