This minor provides a rigorous foundation in physics for students who choose not to complete the entire physics major. The minor begins with a set of two introductory courses (6 credits) in electromagnetic fields (PHYS260 or PHYS272) and waves (PHYS270 or PHYS273). As part of this introduction to Physics, the minor also requires a one-credit introductory physics laboratory (PHYS174, PHYS261, or PHYS271) involving techniques of data gathering and analysis. To obtain a deeper understanding of physics, the minor requires three additional upper-level courses (3-4 credits each), which students can select from the list below.
Note: At the beginning of the semester in which graduation is intended, a student should make an appointment with the Physics Department's Undergraduate Advisor to fill out the appropriate paperwork.
