A minor program is available in physics. The minor program seeks to develop the student's knowledge concerning the fundamental laws of the universe: the structure of matter, the nature of energy, and the interaction of matter and energy.

To minor in physics, a student must complete the following:
PHYS 1401General Physics I
(Prerequisites: MATH 1303 and 1304)
PHYS 1402General Physics II (Prerequisite: PHYS 1401)
PHYS 3301Classical Mechanics (Prerequisites: PHYS 1402 and MATH 1406)
PHYS 3303Modern Physics (Prerequisite: PHYS 1402)
PHYS 3304Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics (Prerequisites: PHYS 1402 and MATH 1406)

PHYS 3402Electrodynamics (Prerequisites: PHYS 1402 and MATH 1406)

Students should pay close attention to the mathematics prerequisites for the physics course(s). Students who plan to complete all 21 semester hours in physics must complete the following courses:
