About the Program

The Program consists of two consecutive lower - division intensive physics courses (four - week sessions each), that will allow you to complete the equivalent of one year of physics for life sciences majors at the University of California. 


This program is designed for UCEAP students from across the UC system, so you will not be in class with other local or international students.

Each course is worth 6 quarter/4 semester UC units, and students are required to take a full-time course of study while abroad: 12 quarter/8 semester UC units. The pass/no pass grading option is not available on this program.
