Physics - Minor
A minor in Physics is designed for those who have a strong interest in Physics, but don’t want to make it a profession. It includes a set of classes that will give you a firm foundation in Physics and the ability to pursue a more in-depth study in one of the Physics areas of your choice. The minor in Physics will develop analytical thinking and quantitative problem-solving skills that you can apply in any field. It will also give you the basic knowledge to make informed decisions, advise, instruct, or administrate in our modern science- and technology-dominated world.
To declare a Physics minor, please contact an academic advisor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
