Physics, the branch of science concerned with the nature and properties of matter and energy, encompasses the study of the universe from the largest galaxies to the smallest subatomic particles. It explores motion, heat, light and other radiation, sound, electricity, magnetism and the structure of atoms. Physics courses are offered at the colleges of DCCCD for both science and non-science majors. This area also includes Astronomy courses.
Note that all courses may not be offered at every college of DCCCD. For a full listing of all courses, including which college offers a specific course, check the online Combined Colleges catalog.

The core of learning in college is a set of courses that will provide you with the knowledge, skills and educational experiences you need to succeed in higher education. Those classes — called the Core Curriculum — are the courses that lead to an associate degree from the colleges of DCCCD and which transfer to four-year colleges and universities.
Students who complete the DCCCD Core Curriculum with at least a 2.0 GPA are guaranteed that their courses will transfer as a block of credit to any Texas public college or university. Individual Core courses must be accepted as well by the transfer institution, according to state law.
