Minor in Physics

The Minor in Physics provides students with an opportunity to strengthen and broaden their educational credentials, as an enhancement of future employment prospects. A Minor in Physics is appropriate for any student who would like an exposure to science and technology, which is becoming 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
  • Plus, any two additional physics courses at the 300-400 level that total 6 credits. This requirement is very easy to fulfill.
