Info

 

A physics minor provides a foundation in classical and modern physics, together with enhanced skills in electronics or computational physics.  It is a good complement for students enrolled in many other majors.

The Physics Minor is not available to majors in physics, biological physics, or engineering physics. 

Courses may not be taken on a credit / no-credit basis.
