Physics (PHYS)

Physics is the study of the physical environment and the laws governing the behavior of particles, fields, and space and/or time. Students study mechanics, heat, light, electric and magnetic fields, gravitation, relativity, atomic and nuclear physics, solid state physics, and many other topics. Because it is so basic, a major in physics is ideal preparation, not only for further study in physics at the graduate level, but for advanced study in a variety of other fields.

At Green River Community College you may begin your studies by taking courses that prepare you to be "major ready" and transfer to a university. While you are taking your major prerequisites within your transfer degree, you can focus your distribution choices and elective credits toward meeting your educational goals and area of interest.

All transferability of classes to four-year institutions is at the discretion of the receiving institution. Students should contact an advisor at the college to which they intend to transfer. Please visit the College Transfer Center for more information.
