Physics (Minor)

Physics is concerned with the nature, structure and interactions of matter and radiation. Adding a physics minor to another major program of study provides a student with the fundamental scientific basis to address the most challenging opportunities faced in a student's career.

The physics minor provides students with the fundamental concepts of physics beyond the introductory level. Through rigorous hands-on experience, students deepen their understanding of foundational concepts and develop their quantitative skills.

Students can tailor the minor through upper-division electives to enhance their career outlook.

Career Outlook

A minor can help students enhance the marketable skills they acquire in their major program and help them develop new skills apart from it, though most career areas do require more training than a minor alone can provide.

Graduates with a minor in physics have additional analytical and problem-solving skills which are of benefit as they pursue careers in technical fields.
