Physics Minor

Physics is generally regarded as the most fundamental of the natural sciences. Research in this area encompasses everything from the tiniest subatomic particles to the entire universe, from the fabric of time and space to the nature of reality itself. But the subject has a practical side, too: the future depends greatly on how people solve the world's problems, and problem solving is one of the things people trained in physics do best. From work in biophysics to quantum computation to planetary exploration, there are abundant possibilities for applying knowledge gained in this broad-ranging field. 

In addition, a bachelor's degree in Secondary Education with a Physics Option is available in conjunction with the College of Education.
