Physics Overview

The physics courses at Marygrove courses provide a general introduction to physics.

If you are a science major or minor, or if you are preparing for a career in engineering, medicine/health, forensic science, or as a science teacher, the physics sequence will introduce you to the fundamental concepts and investigations to complement your program of study.


Engineers help people and society by creating innovative designs ranging from limb prostheses, joint replacements and heart machines to automobiles, airplanes and computers, to clean water processes, wind turbines and solar panels for alternative energy. Engineers and Engineering Technologists then design and oversee the manufacturing processes to ensure quality products are provided to customers.

Pharmacy Technology Overview

The Pharmacy Technology program is a two-semester, cohort-based, certificate program. This program prepares students to take the National Pharmacy Technician Certification (NPTC) Board’s certifying examination (http://www.ptcb.org ).

Pharmacology for Pharmacy Technicians PHT 121

This course provides an introduction to basic concepts of pharmacology as they relate to all of the body’s systems, and presents basic pharmacology with emphasis on drug therapy. The course content includes drug laws, terminology, therapeutic classes of drugs, indications, side effects, contraindications, and generic and trade names.

Pharmacy Practice I PHT 130

This course focuses on the skills necessary to interpret, prepare, label, and maintain records on medication orders and prescriptions. This course will train the student in the administration of supply, inventory, data entry, and third party billing. The students will learn the many dosage formulations and administration, how the body metabolizes drugs, and will have a basic understanding of how drugs are classified and what conditions or diseases each class of drug treats. Role-playing will be used. Students will apply for PTCB exam.

Pharmacy Practice II PHT 131

This course is an overall review process of pharmacy practice with hands on labs to evaluate student’s abilities to perform various pharmacy computer operations related to the community pharmacy practice setting. Students will demonstrate proficiency in prescription processing, professionalism, communication skills, and pharmacy laws.

Pharmacy Technology Field Practicum PHT 170

This is an exploration of the unique role and practice of pharmacy technicians in a pharmacy with emphasis on daily pharmacy operations. Students will be assigned an experiential training site and work under the supervision of a registered pharmacist for approximately 80 hours. Emphasis is placed on assisting the pharmacist in serving patients, medication distribution, inventory control, and pharmacy operations. The last 6 weeks of the course will include an overview and review of pharmacy practice to prepare the student to take the national PTCB exam.

Physics I: Mechanics & Sound PHY 285

This course offers an introduction to the field of classical mechanics from a calculus based perspective. The study of motion will be the primary focus. Topics include: Vectors, kinematics, Newton's Laws of Motion, dynamics, gravity, work and energy, rotational motion, oscillations and mechanical waves. Laboratory included.

Physics II: Electricity & Light PHY 286

This course builds upon the lessons learned in PHY 285 with a focus on electricity, magnetism and light. Course topics include: Electrostatics, AC and DC circuits, magnetism, electromagnetic induction, electromagnetic radiation, optics, as well as a brief survey of modern physics topics such as relativity and the Standard Model. Laboratory Included.
