Minor in Physics

  • A minor in physics is offered to provide students with an opportunity to strengthen and broaden their educational credentials, either as an end in itself or as an enhancement of future employment prospects.
  • The minor in physics is especially designed for students in the pre-health care professions, who must pursue a minor to meet graduation requirements.
  • A physics minor is also appropriate for a humanities student who would like an exposure to science and technology (more and more important these days, considering the prevalence of technology in our lives).
  • The requirements for the physics minor are: two lecture courses PHY 201 (or PHY 211) and PHY 203 (or PHY 213) with the two physics laboratories PHY 202 and PHY 202, plus at least 6 (4) credit hours of elective upper-level courses. This requirement is very easy to fulfill by taking just one 300 level course, such as PHY350 (Biomedical Physics - 4 credit hours) and an independent studies or special topics course.
