Courses are typically short in length and allow students to gain skills and knowledge in a specific topic. Students often take courses to gain additional knowledge for a current career or to learn new skills for a new career.

What is an online course in physics? Physics is the study of the properties of energy and matter. Courses in this area may cover electricity, the structure of atoms, sound, radiation, heat, mechanics, light and magnetism. Students may study methods and principles used in this field, which include special relativity, Newtonian mechanics, thermodynamics, waves and gravitation. Problem solving and analysis may also be focused on, along with laboratory skills. Some courses may include practical work in a laboratory.

Students who complete a course in physics are armed with scientific skills that can be used in careers in engineering, education and science. This knowledge may enable students to qualify for entry-level positions with scientific institutions.

Students enrolling in a physics course should get cost estimates directly from their school. This is because costs vary for programs at different schools.

Careers may be found in different industries, including engineering, education, consulting and business. Possible career titles include lab technician, data analyst, accelerator operator, IT consultant, design engineers, physics teacher and laser engineer. Students may be prepared to work for nuclear companies, private organizations and government agencies. After completing a course in physics, students may wish to go on to earn a degree in physics that may qualify them for advanced scientific careers.

Physics is a complex subject, and a physics course may give you the education you need to understand its different components. You may be able to begin training for a new career or enhance your current skills by completing a course.
