Associate of Science - 62 - 64 Credit Hours
Division: Science, Mathematics and Engineering
Effective as of Fall 2017
What is the program about?
The Associate of Science in Physics is designed for students who are planning to transfer to a four-year college or university and pursue a baccalaureate degree program in Physics. The curriculum fulfills the freshman and sophomore general education requirements along with the required first year physics courses offered at most four-year colleges and universities. Physics majors will develop a solid understanding of the fundamental laws of physics in addition to acquiring strong analytical and laboratory skills. As part of this degree program, students must complete the requirements of the Ohio Transfer Module in order to graduate.
- Create a common understanding through the use of verbal and nonverbal messages in a variety of contexts.
- Design and execute a scientific investigation: develop and evaluate cause and effect scenarios, isolate Express technical and scientific ideas in clear, concise language avoiding unnecessary jargon, without sacrificing precision.
- Design and execute a scientific investigation: develop and evaluate cause and effect scenarios, isolate variables, design and execute controlled experiments accounting for uncertainties, outliers and other statistical variants, develop empirical relationships between key variables.
- Be able to assess information on a topic from a wide variety of sources and be able to learn new things on one’s own. Demonstrate the ability to work in diverse teams toward a common goal. sacrificing precision.
- Analyze a wide variety of physical phenomena and systems by constructing mathematical models, make appropriate approximations, formulate a solution using multiple representations when appropriate and evaluate the solution for accuracy and consistency.
- Describe the fundamental principles and concepts of physics appropriate to introductory level physics and recognize patterns in nature.
Physics can be the pathway to a variety of careers such as research scientists, astrophysicists, material scientists, radar project managers, gravity researchers, and many types of engineers.
Completion of this program guarantees completion of the Ohio Transfer Module (OTM). OTM courses are guaranteed to transfer to any public institution in Ohio on a course-by-course basis or in total.Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.
