About this Program

The minor in physics offers a coherent introduction to the topics of physics.

Program Overview

Selection of the physics minor should benefit the following:

  • Students currently majoring in one of the science fields who want to obtain a more complete understanding of the physical universe; 
  • Students in mathematics who might wish to examine (in a more applied way) the concepts of their discipline.

Master’s level programs in chemical physics and many engineering and physics graduate schools consider favorably the application of a student with a minor in physics and a major in a related discipline such as mathematics.
