Programs General Electives

  1. Mar 16, 2016 #1
    How many general electives are typical for a bachelors degree in Physics?

    They are accepting 18 of my art credits for the Physics Transfer program at the associates level. I would like to know how many credits will count towards a bachelors. I am guessing 9 credits...I am trying to get an appointment with an adviser at a local state college.

    Some of those credits might be accepted towards the general education requirements at the "new" college. (Some schools have a "fine arts" requirement.) As for general elective credit, it probably depends on (a) how many hours they require in total for a bachelor's degree, minus (b) how many hours they require for general education requirements, minus (c) how many hours are required for the physics major.
