Department of Chemical and Physical Sciences
Associate of Science in Physics
The associate of science program in physics is intended to develop an acute awareness of our physical environment on a conceptual level through rigorous mathematical manipulation of the fundamental laws of physics and through utilization of the techniques of the modern physical scientist. It is also designed to serve as an intermediate step towards acquiring the baccalaureate degree in engineering, physics, or similar science. Depending upon previous educational background, this associate degree can be completed in two to three years.
Entry level courses can be completed on either campus, but the degree must be completed on St. Thomas campus.
Note that PHY 341 (Modern Physics) and PHY 351 (Modern Physics Lab) are offered every other semester, while PHY 311 (Classical Mechanics I) and PHY 321 (Electromagnetism) are offered alternately between offerings of PHY 341/351. PHY 312 (Classical Mechanics II) is offered upon request. All upper division course schedules are subject to change based upon student demand.
