Minor in Physics

  • The minor in physics is especially designed for students in the pre-health care professions, who must pursue a minor to meet graduation requirements. It provides students with an opportunity to strengthen and broaden their educational credentials, as an enhancement of future employment prospects.
  • 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 science and technology in our lives.
  • The Department of Physics awards a minor in physics to students who have completed the following courses with at least a C average: PHY 201 (or 211), 202, 203 (or 213), 204, and any two additional physics or physical science courses at the 300-400 level. This requirement is very easy to fulfill by taking just one 300 level course, such as PHY350 or a special topics course.
