The minor in Physics is an excellent way of satisfying your curiosity about science while you major in another field. It is a particular asset for students competing for admission to professional schools (such as law or medicine), or especially for students interested in the 3+2 engineering master's program.
The minor consists of 18-20 credit hours. Courses completed for a related major may also count for your minor, thus reducing the credit hours required.
