Programs of Study

Physics

Graduates with degrees in physics have a variety of career options. Those with a B.S. degree may work in industry or teach in grades K through 12. Those with a M.S. degree may also teach at the community college level and, those with a PhD may teach and do research at universities. In industry, some physicists work with engineers to design and develop useful devices and systems. Others pursue programs of pure or applied research as do their colleagues at universities.

ASSIST is a computerized student-transfer information system that can be accessed over the World Wide Web. It displays reports of how course credits earned at one California college or university can be applied when transferred to another. ASSIST is the official repository of articulation for California’s colleges and universities and therefore provides the most accurate and up-to-date information available about student transfer in California.
ASSIST is available at www.assist.org.
