The physics minor helps student achieve a grasp and understanding of fundamental physics principles beyond the introductory level.
Physics minor requirements and curriculum
The Astronomy minor is intended for students who are interested in learning about modern astronomy and astrophysics.
Astronomy minor requirements for non-physics majors
The Astronomy minor for non-physics majors requires a total of 20 credit hours.
Astronomy minor requirements for physics majors
The Astronomy minor for a physics major requires a total of 12 credit hours beyond the physics major requirements.
Students who complete the Biophysics minor achieve a grasp of physics as it relates to solving biological problems and to a general understanding of the nature of biological problems and of proteins and cell membranes in particular, and of several techniques based on physics principles that are used in biological investigations. Graduates may apply the quantitative skills learned in this minor to graduate or medical school studies, or to other applied vocations.
