Do you have a passion for physical phenomena?
Would you enjoy conducting your own research into physical marvels, developing theories based on observations of your experiments, or studying physical laws and theories? If you’re interested in a career in physics, our professors will help you develop research, critical thinking, and scientific skills. There are many types of physicists including astrophysicists, atomic, molecular, and optical physicists, medical physicists, and many other physics specialties.
This transfer track is designed to prepare students entering the university as a physics major. All state public universities offer a B.S. degree in physics. Florida State University also offers a degree in radiation physics, and the University of Florida offers a B.S. degree in Astronomy (which requires the same physics transfer track at Gulf Coast State College). Most university physics programs require a foreign language for which a country speaking that language is also involved in physics research. Students may choose among the following: French, German, Japanese, and Russian. It is strongly recommended that students be familiar with the admissions requirements for the university they plan to attend.
