Explore the science of energy and motion by taking physics courses that focus on mechanics, electricity and magnetism, waves and heat, relativity to the basics of quantum physics.  Students learn through lecture and hands-on lab experiences.

Physics courses are offered as part of the requirements of the Associate of Science degree or may be taken as required or elective courses to complete other degrees.  Students interested in pursuing a degree at ASU, NAU or UA should meet with physics faculty to plan their course of study using transfer information.
