There are two minors offered in the physics program:
- a traditional minor consisting of twelve upper division credits (two three-credit-hour 3000- or 4000-level PH courses, plus two three-credit-hour 4000-level PH courses ) and
- a specialized Physics of Medicine minor designed for students interested in pursuing a health care career. A grade of C or better is required in each upper-division course counted toward fulfillment of the minor requirements. (A grade of C- will not satisfy this requirement.) The Physics of Medicine minor is available to students interested in health care to deepen their understanding of physics principles and the applicability of those principles to the field of health care. Lower-division prerequisites for this minor are PH 1700/1710 and PH 1750/1760;or PH 2800/2810 and H 2900/2910; and MT 1800 Calculus I. Upper-division courses required for this minor are PH 3200, PH 3210, PH/MT 3240, and MT 3260.
These minors are not available to Physics Majors.
