Physics provides a pathway to a wide variety of high demand careers in diverse sectors with the skills related to numeracy, problem solving, data analysis and communication of complex ideas, as well as understanding of how the world works on a scientific level. Students will enhance their problem solving and critical thinking skills as they explore the relationship of physics to other topic in science, technology and engineering.
Core classes include:
- Physics (Scientific and Engineering)
Related electives include:
- Environmental Science
- Linear Algebra
Physics Majors go into a wide variety of careers. Some examples are:
|Entry Manufacturing Engineer||Tech Engineer||Medical Doctor|
|Data Scientist Entry||High School Physics Teacher (w/credential)||Radiation Oncology Physicist|
|Operator and Technician||Renewable Energy||College Professor|
|Associate Staff Scientist||Computer Science Engineer||Patent Law Engineering|
|Research & Development (R & D)||Staff Scientist/ R & D||R & D Lab Scientist/Data|
|Lab Technologist||Physicist at NASA/similar|
Students successfully completing the Physics Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) Degree have a solid foundation for pursuing further education in Physics or a related field. This AS-T degree is specifically designed to streamline transfer to CSU, see www.adegreewithaguarantee.com for details. UC transfer is streamlined by following a UC Transfer Pathway . Please see a counselor for your best major preparation and general education pattern for your specific goals.
