Physics Minor


Requirements for a Minor in Physics


A minimum of 24 credit hours in physics and a GPA of 2.0 in physics are required for a minor.

Students Seeking Certification to Teach at the Secondary Level with a Minor in Physics


Must have a minimum GPA of 2.7 in the minor. Since students seeking certification for secondary teaching with a major in physics are required to take PHY 105 for certification, students seeking certification for secondary teaching with a minor in physics are also encouraged to take PHY 105. Therefore, PHY 105 may be counted as part of the additional 10 hours in physics courses for those students. This option is not open to students seeking a minor in physics in programs other than secondary education.

Note: Most of the physics courses require prerequisites in mathematics.

Those students seeking certification to teach at the secondary level with a minor in physics must have a minimum GPA of 2.7 in the minor. Students must also meet the same requirement for laboratory and tutoring experience as outlined for certification with a major in physics.
