Physics Minor

A minor in physics is very flexible and can be tailored to complement a student's major. The requirements for the minor are as follows:

Students can choose between TWO (2) introductory tracks:

• PHYS 213. General College Physics I
• PHYS 214. General College Physics II


• PHYS 313. Physics for Scientists I
• PHYS 314. Physics for Scientists II
• PHYS 315. University Physics Lab I
• PHYS 316. University Physics lab II


After the introductory track, students must complete 6 additional hours of upper-division courses numbered 500 and above (excluding 501 and 502). Students enrolled in the following degree programs are encouraged to consider the following possibilities for additional paths of study:

• Aerospace - Modern Physics and Astrophysics
• Mechanical - Analytical Mechanics and Thermophysics
• Electrical - Modern Physics and Electricity and Magneticsm
• Industrial - Modern Physics and Computational Physics
• Chemistry - Solid State Physics and Quantum Mechanics
• Biology - Modern Optics and Modern Physics
• Economics/Finance - Computational Physics and Modern Physics

These are merely suggestions for selected degree programs. Any interested student across any field should contact undergraduate advising for other suggestions.
