    Requirements for a Minor in Physics: 18 credits in Physics including
    • PY 221 & PY 222 General Physics I and II or
    • PY 241 & PY 242 Physics I and II
    A physics minor is very useful in many technical fields, since the study of physics develops
    an understanding of basic principles, mathematical modeling, and practical applications.
    Specific areas where a physics background is useful include imaging techniques in
    medicine and biology, analytical instrumentation in chemistry, remote-sensing techniques in the geosciences, and the development of realistic physical models in computer science and mathematics.
