The Saddleback College Physics program prepares students to transfer into majors in physics, chemistry and engineering at a four year institution. Preparation is also provided for pre-medical, dentistry and biological sciences. Many other health service majors and technical programs are complemented by completion of this program. We emphasize hands-on instruction in a student focused environment.
