Minor in Physics/Astronomy

Minor in Physics
A student whose major is in another department may receive a minor in physics with the completion of the following courses with grades of C- or better: Physics 2750, 2760: University Physics I and II (10 credit hours), Physics 3150, Introduction to Modern Physics (3 credit hours), plus two additional physics courses at the 4000 level or above. It should be noted that in order to complete these requirements, the student must complete mathematics through Differential Equations.

Minor in Astronomy
A student whose major is in another department may receive a minor in astronomy with the completion of the following courses with grades of C- or better: Physics 2750, 2760: University Physics I and II (10 credit hours), Physics 3010: Introduction to Modern Astrophysics (3 credit hours), plus two additional astronomy courses at the 4000 level or above.

A student must have a total of 19 credit hours to receive a minor in physics or astronomy. At least nine of the 19 credit hours must be completed on-campus. A course in which a grade of D+ or below was received will not count towards the minor. To receive your minor in physics or astronomy, you must print and fill out the minor form (see links above), have it signed by the Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Physics Department, and then take it to 107 Lowry Hall.
