Physics is the study of the properties of matter, energy, radiation, and their interactions. It is generally regarded as basic to all the natural sciences, and as such is a fundamental part of the professional preparation of biologists, chemists, engineers, and other scientists and technologists.

The minor program in physics provides the foundation for a broad spectrum of challenging careers in scientific and non-scientific fields. It offers a good scientific supplement to those students majoring in mathematics, chemistry, and biology.

A minor in physics at the bachelor’s level requires a minimum of 20 credits of study in physics.

Physics Minor Requirements: 20 credits


A minor is a secondary area of study outside of the major program of study with a structured curriculum composed of at least 18 credits of which at least 9 credits must be at the 3000-level or above.
