Physics & Applied Physics Minor


The Department of Physics & Applied Physics offers a minor in Physics.

A student who has a basic background in physics and mathematics may be able to take more advanced physics courses. The goal of the Physics minor program is to provide recognition for students in other majors who wish to enhance their understanding and mastery of a broader range of subjects than is provided in their major field alone.

The Physics minor will establish the physics background needed to enter interdisciplinary fields such as biophysics, medical physics, or material science. In addition, Physics minor would be especially useful for students majoring in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Earth Sciences, Engineering or Computer Science.

A minor in Physics consists of 21 credits. All course prerequisites and co-requisites must be satisfied.
