The Physics courses available at NCC are designed to satisfy the requirements for instruction in Physics for students in many disciplines and meet the standards for transfer as "general education" courses within the various SUNY institutions. In addition, these courses are acceptable for transfer credit to most private colleges and universities. The sequences available include calculus- and non-calculus-based courses suitable to majors in engineering, the physical sciences, biological sciences, Allied Health Sciences, mathematics and education (high school teachers of physics). These courses may also be suitable for those students who have an interest in physics and would like to satisfy their "laboratory science requirement" with courses in the discipline.
