  • Freshman Info
    that we don t really have the time to re teach it when you get here To be frank very few students make it to a degree in physics if they are not ready to take pre Calculus or higher once they arrive at Sac State so having completed pre calculus or trigonometry in high school is almost essential Be comfortable with technology Make sure you can use word processors and spreadsheet software efficiently You will use both a lot in college not just in physics classes either When you get to Sac State please keep the following things in mind as you start your studies most of this applies to any student irregardless of their major Be realistic about time Being a full time student is a full time job For every hour in class you should be spending at least 2 hours outside of class studying For a typical fifteen unit load this means that you should be spending over 30 hours a week studying outside of class If you must work more than 15 hours a week select your schedule wisely so that you re not overcommitted Take your math seriously To follow up on what we said above be aware that the first mathematics course that we require is significantly beyond the minimum University GE requirement Students who struggle through the calculus series are more likely to struggle in their physics courses Math calculus and algebra is the language of physics you need to know it thoroughly Practice practice practice You will never learn to speak a foreign language without speaking it Physics is no different To succeed you must do problems lots of them then do some more Don t take short cuts using solutions manuals Don t assume that the algebra that follows the

  • Transfer Student Info
    State s Physics Programs There are a few things that you should consider to make your transfer to our program as seamless and efficient as possible If you have any questions that aren t answered here please send us an email at physics csus edu Our programs require quite a few lower division courses which are available at the community college The more that you complete while there the easier things will be when you get here You can check out equivalencies between California Community Colleges and the California State University at www assist org The most important courses to get out of your way are Sac State course numbers are in parentheses Three semesters of Calculus Math 30 31 32 Three semesters of Calculus based Physics Physics 11A 11C 11B If you are coming from a community college with a Associates Degree for Transfers AST in Physics the above classes coupled with your GE coursework will complete your degree While these classes are what we would consider essential there are a few other classes that we strongly recommend that you complete at the community college Differential Equations Math 45 Two semesters of Chemistry Chemistry 1A 1B These lower division classes are required for our degree In particular the Differential Equations course serves as a prerequisite for several upper division classes in physics The chemistry classes do not serve as prereqs for any classes in the physics major but they are in extremely high demand at Sac State and it has been challenging at time for students to enroll in the class If you have completed an AST degree you should be able to graduate with our BA with 60 units here at Sac State but without having completed Differential Equations it will be difficult to arrange these classes into
