Catalog 2016-2017 > College of Natural and Health Sciences > Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Physics > Physics > Physics Minor
The minor in physics is geared toward students in the sciences or mathematics who would benefit from study of the mathematical modeling of physical phenomena and a deeper understanding of the processes that define our natural world.
A physics minor provides the background which is sought after in many interdisciplinary fields such as biophysics or geophysics. A physics minor is a helpful addition for students seeking a major in biology, chemistry or mathematics.
To complete the physics minor, a student must complete 12 credits in general physics (PHY 200, PHY 201 or PHY 205, PHY 206) and modern physics (PHY 307), and an additional 8 credits of PHY courses at or above 300 level, with a grade of “C” or better.
Students also must complete 8 credits in physics (PHY) courses at or above the 300 level, and earn a grade of “C” or better.
Total Credit Hours: 20
