UPDATED FOR THE SEMESTER CURRICULUM
A minimum of 39 units in physics, including those in the table below, must be taken. Of these 39 units at least 9 units must be chosen from upper division (300 and 400-level) PHY or AST courses (except that no more than 3 units may be from AST 3050, AST 3420, PHY 3010, or PHY 3020).
The Support and Elective Course requirements of many science and engineering majors include all but a few courses needed for a Physics Minor.
For a description of the contents of these courses see the Catalog listings.
|Course Number||Course Name||Units|
|MAT 1140||Calculus I||4|
|MAT 1150||Calculus II||4|
|MAT 2140||Calculus III||4|
|MAT 2250||Linear Algebra with Applications to Differential Equations||4|
|PHY 1510/L||Introduction to Newtonian Mechanics/Laboratory||4|
|PHY 1520/L||Introduction to Electromagnetism and Circuits||4|
|PHY 2530/A||Introduction to Electromagnetic Radiation and Relativity||3|
|PHY 2540/A||Introduction to Thermal and Quantum Physics||3|
Note: PHY 1210/L (Physics of Motion, Fluids, and Heat) and 1220/L (Physics of Electromagnetism, Circuits, and Light) may be substituted for the calculus-based 1000-level introductory physics courses above if these courses have already been completed at the time a student enrolls in the Physics Minor.
