A minor in physics by majors outside of physics requires 18 semester hours, at least 6 of which must be at the 3000 level or higher and must be approved by the undergraduate advisor. The minor sequence is PHYS 1408, PHYS 2401, PHYS 3301/PHYS 3201, plus 6 hours of approved 3000-level or above courses. Students must receive a grade of C or better in all courses applied toward a minor. Core astronomy courses (ASTR 1400 and 1401) may not be used to satisfy requirements for the physics major or minor.
Students are encouraged to participate in the Society of Physics Students, which sponsors several academic and social activities.
