Career Options & Highlights
The Folsom Lake College Physics, Physical Science and Astronomy department offers a full array of transferable courses that fulfill both major and general education requirements. The Physics program consists of a three-semester calculus-based physics sequence and a two-semester trigonometry-based sequence. These sequences are designed to meet transfer requirements for students in the physical and life sciences, engineering, architecture, and computer information science. A preparatory physics course is also offered. The courses in Astronomy and Physical Science are offered as part of the general education program at Folsom Lake College. The physical science course emphasizes a hands on learning experience. Both courses are an excellent way for the liberal arts students to gain an appreciation of scientific knowledge and methods.
