About the Program

The study of physics is extensive. It includes such fields as astronomy, optics, nuclear and high-energy physics, acoustics, solid state physics, biophysics, and geophysics. The career physicist may stand on a missile-launching pad, go beneath the sea or ascend into the upper atmosphere. Today, however, nuclear physicists represent the largest single group of full-time employed physicists.

Career Options
Acoustic Physicist, Air Pollution Specialist, Astronomer, Astrophysicist, Atomic Physicist, Biophysicist, Chemical Engineer, Civil Engineer, Consumer Safety Officer, Electrical Engineer, Electronic and Molecular Physicist, Electro-Optical Engineer, Environmental Studies Specialist, Food and Drug Inspector, Geophysicist, Industrial Research and Development Specialist, Instrument Designer, Inventor, Laboratory Assistant, Material Researcher, Mechanical Engineer, Metallurgist, Nuclear Physicist, Operations Researcher, Patent Examiner, Pharmacologist, Physical Chemist, Physics Research Technician, Quality Control Specialist, Solid State Physicist, Statistician, Systems Analyst, Teacher, Technical Writer, Theoretical Physicist, Thermodynamics Physicist

Transfer
Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution should complete the lower division major requirements and general education pattern for the appropriate transfer institution and major. Exact major requirements for UC and CSU institutions can be found on www.assist.org. Please see a counselor for more information as curriculum requirements may vary among transfer universities.

A.S. in Physics
The physics major is offered only at the Kentfield Campus. Please note: Students are required to complete English 150 for the Associate degree. All students should consult a counselor.
