The Associate in Science in Physics for Transfer degree (AS-T in Physics) program provides students with sufficient understanding of the physical world with concepts, laws of physics and qualitative and quantitative reasoning skills to think critically and to analyze real world situations. Successful completion of the transfer degree at Monterey Peninsula College
guarantees students acceptance to a California State University (but does not guarantee acceptance to a particular campus or major) to pursue a baccalaureate degree in Physics or related major, in preparation to pursue a career in research, industry, and education. Students must complete the Associate Degree for Transfer requirements to earn the AS-T degree.

Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion of the program, students will have demonstrated the ability to:

  • Use appropriate instruments to perform scientific experiments to analyze data to check agreements with theoretical predictions.
  • Reason qualitatively and logically about physical phenomena using scientific models.
  • Apply Newton’s laws, thermodynamics, the laws of electricity and magnetism, quantum theory, and the principles of energy conservation to problems involving, motion, heat, light, electromagnetism, and matter.
