  • Physics

    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. This minor is offered by the Earth, Environment, and Physics Department.

    Requirements for a Minor in Physics: 18 credits
    • PY 221 & PY 222 General Physics I and II or
    • PY 241 & PY 242 Physics I and II
