Physics

Career Options & Highlights

The Folsom Lake College physics program offers an 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 PHYS 310 and PHYS 312 classes are meant to give liberal arts students a comprehensive breath of the field of physics and the laboratory class gives a hands-on learning experience. Both courses are an excellent way for liberal arts students to gain an appreciation of scientific knowledge and methods. PHYS 311 is a preparatory class for prospective PHYS 350 and PHYS 411 students who have the required math, but lack physics and problem solving skills needed for success in future physics classes.
