Physics - Science Transfer

About the Degree

Associate in Science (A.S.) Degree
This program parallels the first two years of baccalaureate degree programs in physics related fields. The major prepares graduates to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue studies in physics, applied physics, computational physics, astronomy, astrophysics, geology, meteorology, material sciences, and other related fields.

What will students learn if they study Science Transfer?
Students concentrate on theoretical and applied physics, and mathematics. This prepares them to meet the challenges of advanced physics in professional careers.

Are there any requirements that must be satisfied before taking courses in the major?
Students must have a grade of “C” or better in high school algebra II, geometry, advanced algebra and trigonometry, laboratory chemistry and laboratory physics. They must also pass the College’s placement test.

Can students transfer to a four-year college or university?
The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all of the lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements with private institutions may provide similar transfer provisions. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.

How long will it take to complete this degree?
Once students complete developmental coursework (if needed), the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. They can shorten the amount of time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions.
