The Associate in Science in Physics for Transfer (A.S.-T in Physics) degree includes lower division coursework that is required for transfer. This program is designed to prepare students who wish to transfer to a California State University campus to complete a bachelor’s degree in physics, physics education or a related field of study.
It will educate the student in applying the scientific method to collect and analyze data in forming conclusions, to verify physical principles through measurement and experimentation, to solve problems and to predict outcomes in nature using physical laws, and to state and apply physical concepts to explain phenomena encountered in our everyday world.
The Associate in Science in Physics for Transfer (A.S.-T in Physics) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in Physics at a California State University campus. Students completing this degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU System, but not to a particular campus or major. Students transferring to a CSU campus that does accept this degree will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor’s degree.
The Associate in Science in Physics for Transfer (A.S.-T in Physics) may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to a university or college that is not part of the CSU system. In all cases, students should consult with a counselor for more information on university admission and transfer requirements.
PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES
Upon satisfactory completion of this award, the student should be prepared to:
1. Use the Scientific Method to collect and analyze data in forming conclusions and to verify physical principles through measurement and experimentation.
2. Solve problems and predict outcomes in nature using physical laws.
