Physics Transfer Track

Physics is the study of the fundamental laws of nature from which we can understand and predict events in our world. It is fundamental to all of the sciences and it is especially fundamental to all of the engineering disciplines. With a degree in physics you can pursue a career in research and development, education or you can specialize in a branch of physics such as nuclear or optical. In many cases, physicists will pursue graduate degrees such as masters or Ph.Ds in order to successfully compete in the field.
