Minors in Physics and Astronomy

A minor program in Physics or Astronomy is an excellent complement to programs in Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer Science, or Life Sciences, especially for students planning on teaching at the secondary level, or for elementary education students with an interest in science. A minor in Physics or Astronomy is also useful for Business or Economics majors who will seek employment in science-related businesses. The minor in Physics consists of six courses:

Additional Information:

The two remaining courses are to be chosen from the junior-senior physics or astronomy courses, exclusive of the General Education courses. MTH 393 - Numerical Analysis  and CHM 333 - Physical Chemistry I  may be substituted for one of these two courses. In order to obtain a minor in Astronomy, rather than in Physics, two of the six courses must be in Astronomy, exclusive of General Education courses.
