Physics Minor Program

The minor in physics is for those students who have an interest in physics but wish to pursue a degree in another field.  If the other field were in one of the other sciences then only two or three additional courses would be necessary for completion of the minor.  The intent of the minor is to give students an exposure to the basic disciplines of physics and an opportunity for further study in advanced topics in physics.
