Minor in Physics

About the Minor

Physics is a science that studies the natural phenomena at all scales, from that of the universe to elementary particles. This minor exposes the students to some of the basic principles of physics and would easily complement any other discipline—from engineering to other sciences.

The minor in physics requires a total of 10.0 credits from the elective list in addition to the prerequisite and core courses.

Because of the overlap in requirements between the astrophysics minor and the physics minor, students cannot minor in both.
