Courses and Programs Details

3070 Physical Science: Transfer Associate

The Physical Science Program provides students with the firm foundation in mathematics, science, and liberal arts necessary to transfer to and succeed in a baccalaureate degree program in astronomy, geology, meteorology, physics, and physical science. With appropriate further education, graduates may eventually find jobs in astronomical research and/or planetarium operations (astronomy), within the petroleum industry, mining industry, as an environmental consultant or lawyer, or within a government agency (geology), at the National Weather Service, as a weather researcher, or broadcasting (meteorology), or within research and development, inspection, testing, and quality control, or other production-related jobs (physics).

Since the requirements of senior institutions and their degree programs vary widely, it is recommended that students choose an intended transfer institution as soon as possible and carefully align their course sequence with the program described in that institution’s catalog. The complete program is available at the Harrisburg Campus. Some of the required courses are available at the Gettysburg, Lancaster, Lebanon, and York campuses.

This transfer curriculum is provided as a guide for students planning to transfer to a baccalaureate degree granting institution.

This curriculum is designed to prepare graduates of the program to:

  • Transfer to and succeed in a Bachelor’s program
  • Demonstrate an understanding of scientific principles and concepts
  • Appreciate scientific accomplishments and how they affect technology, politics and society
  • Apply the scientific method to solve scientific problems
  • Demonstrate computer literacy in data manipulation, mining, and analysis
  • Perform technician work in a typical laboratory while following appropriate safety procedures
  • Effectively communicate results both orally and through written reports
  • Appreciate accomplishments in the arts and sciences
