Physics Minor

The physics minor allows students to supplement their major with a stronger foundation in the physical sciences. Students pursue study in advanced topics and apply the scientific method through directed research projects. These faculty led investigations provide the opportunity to further explore particular sub-fields of interest. 

To earn the minor, students must pass two core courses and two elective courses. One elective course must be a directed research course.
