Physics Minor Version S1
All students take both of these courses, totaling 8 credits.
Some of the approved courses are offered as part of the regular course offerings, others are only offered if there is sufficient student interest, and many are on a two-year rotating schedule. There is no guarantee of availability of any particular course in any particular semester. Changes in course offerings that will meet the requirements of the minor will be indicated in the Schedule of Classes and in the Undergraduate Academic Catalog.
In addition to scheduled electives, groups of students may also petition the faculty to offer a course different than the scheduled electives. Interested students may contact any department faculty member.
