Minor in PhysicsDo you want to...
- develop new skills that complement your major?
- impress employers?
- increase your versatility?
...then you should consider a Physics Minor!
There is a need for biologists with quantitative skills! Physicists and biologists collaborate on topics that span from nuclear medicine to the dynamics of protein folding.
Phys 321: Classical EM • Phys 323: Quantum Physics • Phys 324: Stat. Mechanics & Thermodynamics
Quantum mechanics is the basis for much of chemistry, and materials research is the marriage between physics and chemistry.
Phys 323: Quantum Physics • Phys 423: Quantum Mechanics • Phys 422: Applied Solid State Physics
Physics offers the hardware foundations of digital logic and interfacing, and a Physics Minor can open up opportunities in embedded systems engineering.
Phys 280: Electronics • Phys 301: Digital Design • Phys 402: Interfacing and Control
A Physics Minor helps focus principles of mathematics, such as eigenvectors and boundary value problems, into applications towards solving real-world situations.
