Why take a minor in Physics?
Students who take a physics course will learn problem-solving skills and concepts that can be applied to the other sciences. Many of the programs you will pursue recommend or require a class in physics. A minor in physics strengthens any degree you obtain and shows employers in all fields that you are able to think critically and analytically.
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 distant galaxies and how 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.
