Trebuchet outside for physics class

Physics is the root discipline of science that describes the natural universe at its most fundamental level. Physics is relevant to a broad range of academic pursuits including chemistry, biology, engineering, medicine and liberal arts. Physics allows students to view the world with a new understanding and appreciation of its order and beauty.

Transferable Credits

Physics courses are lower division collegiate courses that transfer to a four-year college or university. Physics courses may transfer as:

  • elective credits
  • program requirement credits
  • and/or graduation requirements for the receiving institution

Students are always encouraged to check with the receiving institution, a PCC academic advisor, and the University Transfer website for the most accurate and timely transfer requirement information.
