The Science Division seeks to provide students with a diverse array of physical and life science classes through which they will develop an increased awareness and understanding of scientific knowledge and the scientific method of investigation by which this knowledge has been gained.
Students may earn an Associate in Science Degree - Option II (90 credits) which is designed to prepare students for upper division study in physics. Please consult with an advisor at WWCC and your intended transfer institution to determine an appropriate education plan.
Preparation for Success
Students interested in a major in Physics should take additional courses in mathematics, computer programming and chemistry. Physics' degrees are often combined with other sciences, such as astronomy, biology and geology; so courses in those areas are also recommended.
