Academic Plans, known as programs, include a overview description and a summary of program requirements. You can search the online catalog via the the Academic Plan links on the right for a desired program or a specific course information.
This is a suggested program for the first two years of major study in Physics. Lower-division course requirements will vary depending on the transfer institution. Contact an advisor at the transfer institution to determine required coursework as early as possible. Additional courses may be needed to satisfy graduation requirements for the Associate in Science degree.

Program outcomes are overarching skills that are emphasized and reinforced throughout several courses in a specific program; they are measurable statements that define what students should know or be able to do by the end of a certificate or degree at Clark College. After successful completion of this program, students will be able to:
- Apply scientific methodologies to develop and answer questions about the natural world.
- Demonstrate understanding of the derivative as an instantaneous rate of change and the definite integral as a limit of a sum.
- Analyze and solve multi-step problems using techniques through single-variable calculus.
- Acquire scientific information from appropriate sources to analyze issues, claims or situations.
- Apply a method of scientific inquiry, valid to the natural sciences, to evaluate claims about the natural world. (GE)
- Articulate well-considered ideas and written claims to an academic audience, using effective rhetorical techniques, properly credited evidence, and a command of Standard English. (GE)
- Demonstrate progress toward healthier behaviors. (GE)
- Interpret the human experience, within appropriate global and historical contexts, through evaluation, analysis, creation, or performance. (GE)
- Obtain, evaluate, and ethically use information. (GE)
- Analyze patterns of power, privilege, and inequity in the United States. (GE)
- Evaluate, analyze, and explain events, behaviors, and institutions using perspectives and methods in the Social Sciences. (GE)
- Apply communication theory to demonstrate effective oral communication skills.(GE)
- Demonstrate and clearly explain an effective strategy to solve a quantitative problem. (GE)
