Mission of the Program

A minor program in Physics is intended to provide additional development of physical and mathematical reasoning skills, beyond those provided by the student’s major. It can serve as an excellent complement to programs in Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer Science, or Life Sciences, and is useful for students planning on teaching at the secondary level, or for elementary education students with an interest in science.  The emphasis on quantitative skills also makes the minor useful for Business or Economics majors, especially those who will seek employment in science-related businesses.

The minor in Physics requires the completion of six courses.
