The Physics minor is designed to supplement or enhance career plans for students in other majors. The minor provides a solid foundation in physics for students planning to teach high school sciences, as part of their preparation to become a highly qualified physics teacher alongside teaching another subject.

Students in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, and Mathematics who choose to minor in Physics will also find themselves prepared to use the analytical skills and physics principles in technical careers or in graduate and professional education in medicine, sciences or engineering. Students considering further study that integrates physics, such as engineering or applied sciences, should consult a faculty adviser to determine whether the minor in physics meets the prerequisites for their chosen post-baccalaureate programs.
