Physics: Transfer

Physics is the study of the natural world. Physics focuses on the study of matter, motion, energy, and force. Physics leverages the power of mathematics to understand a wide range of natural phenomena using a small set of fundamental principles.

Careers

Physical science programs provide a wide variety of employment opportunities. Traditionally strong areas of employment in the physical sciences would include engineering firms, government agencies, research and development, and science education.

There are numerous non-traditional careers in the physical sciences as well, such as consulting, forensics, science journalism, environmental science, informatics, toxicology, patent law, business and sales. Excellent career opportunities are available in many of these areas if the student is willing to relocate.

Transfer Guide

The Physics major is available at UO, OSU, PSU, EOU, WOU and SOU. Programs of study offered at UCC are approved for transfer to these institutions.

Students planning to transfer should work closely with UCC faculty and advisers, and with representatives from the receiving college or university. There may be special requirements for specific programs or schools.
