The CLA Undergraduate Physics Minor

Students must have all requirements completed before applying for the minor. To apply, fill out the physics minor program form, available in physics office 148. Your application will be reviewed and if all requirements are met it will be approved and sent to CLA, where the minor will be added to your record. You will also receive an email notification from the physics department when this occurs so you can monitor the addition of the minor to your record.

There is no physics minor available through CSE.
