In order to obtain a minor in Physics a student needs to contact the Department Chief Undergraduate Adviser to set up an approved program of study. This is required to ensure that the program of study for the minor has a sufficiently broad physics content. The following requirements are in place:

Basic courses:
PH 211, PH 212, PH 213. *General Physics With Calculus (4,4,4)
PH 315.  Physics of Contemporary Challenges (3)

Plus at least 12 credits of upper-division courses selected, after consultation with the chief advisor, from the following list, and including at least one theory course and at least one experimental course:
