Minor in Physics
The program can be used as technical preparation to complement work in other scientific or nonscientific areas, e.g., Business majors interested in careers in technologically oriented industries, majors interested in technical or scientific sales, English majors interested in technical writing, or Social Science majors interested in the area of energy and the environment.
Students must complete a minimum of six credits of advanced standing coursework in their minor.*
The Minor in Physics is targeted at two distinct groups of students on campus, majors in other STEM disciplines, and exceptionally motivated majors from other disciplines with a need or desire to understand the core concepts and techniques of physics to obtain their professional goals.
