The Associate in Science Tranfer Degree in Physics provides students with a core curriculum that will prepare them with the knowledge and skills required to transfer and earn a Baccalaureate degree in Physics (or a similar major) at a California State University (CSU). Students will develop strong mathematical, analytical, and laboratory skills, and a solid understanding of the fundamental physical laws that govern the universe. This degree certifi es a students’ ability to analyze and solve problems in the fi eld of physics and other fi elds where expertise in physics is required. The coursework to complete this degree will also satisfy the lower division requirements for a variety of Baccalaureate degrees including, Engineering, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Computer Science.
The Associate in Science in Physics for Transfer will be awarded upon completion of 60 transferable semester units to the California State University, including the following:
- Completion of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education – Breadth Requirements.
- A minimum of 18 semester units required for the major.
- All courses in the major must be completed with a grade of “C” or better or a “P” if the course is taken on a “Pass-No Pass” basis (Title 5 § 55063).
