Current Course Catalog and Student Handbook


Sherry Curtis Rogers

Professor of Physical Science

Program Overview

Very broadly, Physics is the study of energy as opposed to Chemistry, which studies matter and how energy and matter interact with each other. Physics is very much a “service course” at all universities in that there are not very many Physics majors but a great many students have to take it for their major. Students who do well in Physics courses learn extremely useful things about science. They also develop an expertise in problem solving that can be applied to other rigorous courses. Here at DC3 we offer both the Algebra based General Physics sequence and the Calculus based Engineering Physics sequence. Each course has Physics I taught in the Fall Semester and Physics II taught in the Spring Semester.
