Why Not Minor in Physics?

A Physics Minor is available to any student desiring a more extensive introduction to the field and a taste of more advanced topics in physics. If you have already taken at least two of the four introductory courses then you only need the remaining two and one more course at the upper level to get a Minor in Physics. Some of these Physics course may already count as electives for your major.
