The Associate in Science Physics Degree Program offers a secure foundation for further study in physics or engineering. The primary emphasis of the program is to prepare students for transfer to four-year institutions as science or engineering majors. Students are asked to consult the catalog of the transfer institution for specific requirements.
In addition to the required and elective courses, physics students are expected to attend at least four physics or engineering colloquia in their last semester.
