Physical Science is the study of the physical environment, material things, matter, and energy. Students learn the principles that form the foundations of non-living systems and gain an understanding and appreciation of the methodologies of science as investigative tools.
The Physical Science program is designed to prepare students to transfer to a four-year university in a physical science-related discipline.
The Associate in Science degree with an area of emphasis in Earth Science Studies is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree at a transfer institution in a physical or earth science-related major.
