The associate degree program in physics prepares students to begin upper-division work leading to a baccalaureate degree in physics or engineering physics. It also provides some of the support courses required for the baccalaureate degree.

The graduate of the AA program in physics will:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the fundamental laws of physics and physical terminology.
  • Apply physical principles to solve a variety of simple problems.
  • Demonstrate the proper use of physical apparatus for testing and observing physical theories.
  • Write scientific reports on a given experiment indicating the significance of the experiment and the degree to which the results verify a principle or law.
  • Analyze complex problems to identify single principle components and synthesize solutions from multiple concepts.

"The teachers here at Allan Hancock College are remarkable. All of the tack officers that we have here are knowledgeable in what they do but they also know how to get you to learn the material. My instructor really personalizes it, really makes it something that you can grasp onto and remember the stories and therefore remember the content. It's been an incredible experience. I really do enjoy it a lot."
