The Department of Physics and Astronomy also offers a Minor in Physics, which serves to increase the value of the student's major concentration. It also provides a more solid foundation in physics to those wishing to teach science at the middle and high school levels. All students pursuing the Minor in Physics must complete 21 semester credit hours.
21 semester credit hours of required courses:
PHY 1943, 1951 Physics for Scientists and Engineers I and Laboratory
PHY 1963, 1971 Physics for Scientists and Engineers II and Laboratory
PHY 2103, 2111 Modern Physics and Laboratory
PHY 3203 Classical Mechanics I
PHY 3293 Thermal Physics
PHY 3423 Electricity and Magnetism
