Physics as a Second Major

Physics may be selected as a second major if you are wishing to broaden your education. The most popular options are to combine physics with engineering or chemistry. Combinations are also available with computer science and mathematics. You may choose one degree with a double major or two separate degrees. While a second degree usually requires an additional semester of course work, the double major can be accomplished very efficiently. A physics advisor can give you specific details on your choice of the field combinations.

Minor in Physics

A physics minor consists of (PHYS 1401 and PHYS 1402) or (PHYS 2425 and PHYS 2426), PHYS 3350, and nine additional hours of PHYS 3000/4000 level courses to total 20 credits with no grade less than “C”.
