Studying Physical Science at Weber State
Weber State’s physical science major allows you to explore the exciting world of science.
Physical Science Highlights
You can choose from three emphases:
- Chemistry (study of matter and the chemical reactions between substances).
- Geoscience (study of Earth).
- Physics (study of the structure of matter and how the fundamental constituents of the universe interact).
Since all three emphases share the same beginning courses, you don’t need to decide right away. You can jump right in and get started. Your AAS degree will prepare you for a bachelor’s degree in any of the physical sciences, and cover most of your general education requirements.
Beyond the Classroom
You will conduct hands-on experiments in state-of-the-art laboratories, and be fully prepared to continue your education to the bachelor’s degree level and beyond. If you like to figure out how things work, enjoy solving problems and want to learn more about what things are made of (chemistry) and why they behave the way they do (math, geoscience and physics), this is a good major for you.
