Physics is one of the oldest and most fundamental sciences. It attempts to explain how our universe works, from everyday observations such as how cars move on a highway or how rainbows form, to the structure of far distant galaxies and how the our universe began. It is an exciting and constantly changing field as new discoveries are made and new theories created to try to better understand the things we see all around us.

Many students take a physics course to learn problem solving skills and concepts that can be applied to the other sciences. Many of the programs our students are interested in pursuing recommend or require a class in physics.


To obtain a minor in Physics, students must fulfill the following requirements: 
PHYS 1101, 1102 and 2260
1.5 additional units of PHYS at the 2000 level or above
Note: PHYS 1120 and 1130 may not be included
