I want an online physics BS help!

  1. Nov 10, 2012 #1
    Hi,
    My name is Pete & I work full-time. So, at least until the point of a bachelors degree, I would like to take online courses as a physics major. So far I have not found a decent online physics provider. To reiterate...help!

    I don't think there is such a thing. Physics and chemistry courses require lab work.

    I figured that, unfortunately the closest college with a lab is 2+ hrs away, which is why I was hoping for the best on this saving grace.

    Do you have any community colleges nearby? You could enroll in a science transfer degree.

    What is a science transfer degree? The only community college nearby doesn't have a physics major. I think the only sciences they have are biology & chemistry.

    You can always try open university. They offer a physics degree.

    I don't know in what way such a degree is viewed by employers or grad school.

    I think getting an associates online might be better to buy myself some time to move closer to a college or university to finish the job. Thanks!

    It's an AS degree (associates in science), but it's a degree program that allows you to transfer to a 4-year school afterwards. Does the community college offer physics courses? The one I'm attending doesn't have a physics major either, but it does offer physics courses.

    I didn't look that far into it honestly so I'll definitely have to go visit them & see. I know they are connected to a university that is much further up-state. Hopefully that will be the ticket. Thank you!
