Physical Sciences Department
The TMCC Physical Sciences department offers first and second year college courses in astronomy, chemistry, engineering, environmental science, geography, geology, and physics.

They also provide non-science majors with the fundamentals for lifelong learning and responsible decision making.
Why take classes through the TMCC Physical Sciences department?
TMCC's physical sciences instructors are highly qualified individuals who bring field experience and research expertise to the classroom. Many of the full-time faculty hold doctorates and are affiliated with a number of national organizations.
At TMCC, class sizes are purposefully kept small with no more than 30 students per instructor. In addition, the same instructor runs lecture and laboratory sections. As a result, students are sure to receive one-on-one personal attention from the instructor.
The physical sciences department provides state-of-the-art technology in all of its courses. Highlights of this technology include a new Global Positioning System, multiple telescopes, and computer-assisted data acquisition instruments in all the laboratories.
