Provides broad exposure to physical sciences
If you like to work in a lab, learn about technological developments, work with little supervision, and try your own ideas; then consider a degree in
The Associate of Science Degree program in Physical Science allows the student the flexibility to gain a broad exposure to topics in the physical sciences. This degree is designed for transfer to the University of Wyoming or other four-year institutions granting degrees in specific areas of physical science such as physics or chemistry.
Workers in Physical Science are concerned mostly with nonliving things, such as chemicals, rocks, metals, and movements of the earth and stars. They conduct scientific studies and perform other activities requiring knowledge of math, physics, or chemistry. Computer courses are also essential for modeling and simulation and to operate computerized lab equipment.
A Bachelor's degree is the minimum requirement for entrance in the field of Physical Science, while a graduate degree is required for most research work and for college teaching.
Bachelor's degree prepares you for work as an:
• Atmospheric and Space Scientist
• Materials Scientist
Doctorate degrees prepare you for work as an Astronomer or a Physicist.
CWC has an articulation agreement with the University of Wyoming for transfer. Students who transfer to UW with the Associate of Science (AS) degree and have a minimum of two three credit college level math courses will be deemed to have met UW's lower division general education requirements.
Students planning to transfer to another four-year college or university are advised to obtain a catalog from the institution to which they wish to transfer. Using Central Wyoming College's catalog, along with the four-year institution's catalog and advisement information, the student will be able to make appropriate decisions for maximum transferability of his or her courses.
