Physics Minor

The boundary of knowledge in STEAM areas has been blurred. Adding a minor to your undergraduate degree will better prepare you for problem-solving and critical analysis and help you start your career with a broader set of tools.

Our physics minor is suitable not only for students pursuing a STEAM career but is also useful for strengthening the skills of those studying other related majors.

Expand the breadth of your interests while demonstrating broad competence beyond a narrow specialization:

  • Apply critical thinking and problem-solving skills to analyze complex physical phenomena using the course material of the introductory physics courses.
  • Model physical systems using mathematical and computational tools and demonstrate effective written, oral, and communication skills to present your ideas and findings and give coherent oral presentations of scientific material to both peers and the public at large.
  • Read and draft scientific papers in the advanced courses.
  • Gain laboratory skills, including the use of common instruments, experimental design, and data analysis.

To add this minor
