Minoring in Physics

The physics minor consists of the following:

  1. A minimum of 25 credits including Physics 111, 150, 250, 300 and other physics courses numbered above 300 not including 390 and 490. At least one elective must include a laboratory.
  2. Math 120, 121, 222.
  3. If you are entering a teaching field, you may select Astronomy 311 as an elective. A minor in physics is certifiable for teaching only when accompanied by a major in another science or a major in mathematics.
  4. When you decide to minor in physics, register in the department office to be assured of proper advising. To be accepted as a minor you must have a minimum grade point average of 2.00 (2.75 to student teach), regardless of a declaration of academic bankruptcy. The department may grant exceptions. No more than one grade below C- in physics courses numbered 300 or above may be applied to the minor.
