Natural Sciences & Mathematics Programs


Physics is everywhere. It is the science that investigates the most fundamental laws governing all matter and energy in the universe. A minor in physics provides majors in other sciences with an interdisciplinary breadth that expands career opportunities. In addition to providing a deeper understanding of the fundamental processes of nature, it helps to build mathematical and reasoning skills that are valued in all science fields.

Requirements for Physics Minor:

14 credits at the 2000- or 3000-level, at least 6 of which must be taken at Curry. Normally these would consist of three physics courses, including two tutorials at the 3000-level or above, and a related 3000-level mathematics course or tutorial. Interested students should consult with faculty about possibilities.
