Disco­ver the secrets to the uni­verse through Lee College's physics pro­gram, whether you are an aspir­ing sci­entist, engin­eer, or som­eone simply search­ing for an amazing sci­ence elec­tive. In our physics courses, you will have the chance to learn about the every­day world around you as well as dive into the "impos­sible." Indeed, far more is pos­sible than most people can imagine (such as invisi­bility or how you might time-travel without vio­lating any known laws of physics, and much, much more).

For those who want to take an incred­ible jour­ney toward becoming a physi­cist, we offer an Associate of Science degree as a foundation for a bac­helor's degree at a four-year uni­versity. Students will gain an under­standing of our uni­verse, critical think­ing, teamwork, and prob­lem-solv­ing appro­priate for a profes­sion in physics.

For those pursu­ing techni­cal fields, we offer a wide range of courses in sup­port of your studies.

For those who are simply searching for a general science elective, we offer courses in the physics of science fiction (TV shows, movies, etc.) as well as courses in astronomy. We also offer specialized courses for those in select majors, such as education.

Many careers require education beyond the associate degree. Students should work with their advisor to tailor course selections to align with their chosen transfer university. The transfer plan on this page shows an example of courses commonly transferred to universities. Students may choose to continue their education at any university.

What Will I Learn?

You will learn the principles and applications of physics, such as mechanics, astronomy, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, light, and sound. You will also learn key concepts that apply to other STEM courses, such as chemistry, geology, and meteorology.
