College of Letters and Science
A minor in physics gives you an outstanding foundation for understanding science and technology. By succeeding in a challenging field of study, you will be able to distinguish yourself when you start a job or a career!
The physics minor consists of the following:
- A minimum of 25 credits including Physics 111, 240, 250, 300 and other physics courses numbered above 300 not including 390 and 490. At least one elective must include a laboratory.
- Math 225, 226, 227.
- A minor in physics is certifiable for teaching only when accompanied by a certificate in another science (biology, chemistry, earth and space science, or environmental science) as part of the Natural Science for Science Teaching Certification degree.
- 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.
