Minor

     The University requires 15 hours for a minor.  Assuming that the student has taken PHYS1607 & 1617 or PHYS1600 & 1610, the following courses are required for a minor in physics:

Course Hrs  Title
PHYS2100
Intermediate Mechanics 
PHYS2200 
Introductory Quantum Physics and Relativity 
PHYS3100 
Intermediate Electricity and Magnetism 
PHYS3200
Statistical Thermodynamics 
PHYS4100 
Fundamentals of Quantum Mechanics 

Often students minoring in physics may have taken a course in their major that overlaps strongly with one of the required courses listed above.  In that case, the student may substitute a physics course at the 5000 level.
