Physics Minor
Prior to Spring 2012

Minor Program Requirements:

Required Courses:
or PHYS-201
Physics with Calculus I
College Physics I
3 cr.
or PHYS-202
Physics with Calculus II
College Physics II
3 cr.
PHYS-215 Physics III  4 cr.
Nine credits in 300-level physics courses  9 cr.
Total 19 cr.

All 300-level courses in Physics are offered in the evening

Students arestrongly encouraged to take the required 200-level physics courses, as well as MATH 107 (Calculus I) and MATH 202 (Calculus II) as early as possible, since these are prerequisites for almost all of the 300-level physics courses.

Transfer credit information:

Physics courses taken from other institutions inside the U.S. usually transfer with no problem. I will need to see a catalog description of any statistics course taken at another institution and any Physics courses taken at institutions outside the U.S.

The College of Arts and Sciences has a rule that states only 9 hours of Physics transfer credits can be applied towards an Physics minor. Remember that the University requires a grade of C or better in any course applied toward the major or minor.
