The following courses comprise the basics for a student intending to complete a baccalaureate degree in physics at a university. A degree in physics could lead student to pursue a research career or another science-oriented career that requires a physics background. Physicists find employment in a broad range of careers, including engineering, information technology, telecommunications, programming, medicine, astronomy, industrial design and secondary or higher education. A student planning to teach physics at the high school level would be encouraged to take secondary education coursework as well. The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans.  These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.

PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer.  They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC.  Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.
