Course Minors

Physics Minor

The physics minor consists of PHYS 005/ASTR 005, PHYS 007#, PHYS 008#, PHYS 013*, PHYS 015*, PHYS 017*, and PHYS 018 *, and PHYS 111 and PHYS 113+. Corequisites are MATH 015, 025 and 033.

*Half-credit course

#In some cases, PHYS 003 and/or PHYS 004 may be substituted for PHYS 007 and/or PHYS 008.

+ Minors should have two advanced seminars, preferably one in "classical" and one in "quantum" physics. PHYS 111 is a prerequisite for the future seminars and fulfills the "classical" requirement. We recommend PHYS 113 as the second advanced seminar, though a different seminar may be substituted on consultation with the chair.

Astronomy Minor

The astronomy minor consists of PHYS 005/ASTR 005, PHYS 007 or PHYS 003, PHYS 008 or PHYS 004, ASTR 016, one astronomy seminar numbered 100 or above, and one semester of ASTR 061 (0.5 credits). Corequisites are MATH 015, 025 and 033.
