"Physical Science" is just a general classification of sciences. The sciences can broadly be separated into physical, biological, or behavioral. Sciences such as Geology, Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy, Astrophysics, oceanography, ... so many others, are PHYSICAL SCIENCES. Those are broad classifications; certainly you could argue about ways to classify paleontology and anthropology or biophysics. For blended classifications, make whatever distinction is needed for the purpose.

A person earns a degree in a specific named science; when someone mentions a broad category of science, he is not specifying a particular specific science. You earn a degree in something like Physics, Chemistry; but when your degree is a physical science, the specific named science in which the degree was earned is not being expressed - but it IS a degree in a more specifically named science such as Chemistry, or Physics, or Geology, or,..., as such.
