Physics

This minor provides a foundation in physics. Students are introduced to the science through the foundational courses in Newtonian Physics, Fluid Dynamics, and Thermodynamics, Electromagnetism, Optics, Relativity, and Quantum Mechanics. Students then must choose three intermediate level courses to become familiar with the analytical methods used physics.

Required Courses

  • PS131: Classical Physics I
  • PS132: Classical Physics II
  • PS231: Modern Physics

Select three courses from the following:

  • PS242: Dynamics
  • PS346: Thermodynamic
  • PS380: Electricity and Magnetism
  • PS383: Quantum Mechanics
  • PS386: Mathematical Methods of Physic
  • PS449: Topics in Physics

Students interested in a minor in physics must declare the minor prior to pre-registration period for the fall of their senior year. Candidates must have an average GPA of 2.33 in the required courses for successful completion of the minor.
