Program of Study

Physics is a study of the fundamental macroscopic and microscopic properties of nature, from the building blocks of matter to the origin, extent, and future of the universe itself. Physicists seek to measure, understand, model, and control the processes in the physical world around us.

Students with a Minor in Electronics may not also minor in Physics.


Completion of a minimum of twenty-three (23) units, eleven (11) of which must be at the upper-division level. Students must earn a grade of C (2.0) or better in each class in the minor.

Required Upper-Division (8 Units)

At least eight (8) units chosen from any PHYS course numbered 300 or higher that can be counted toward the B.S. in Applied Physics.

Additional Coursework

Additional coursework as necessary, if the courses in Required Lower-Division and Required Upper-Division do not account for the required minimum twenty-three (23) units. Up to six (6) units of upper-division coursework in other science majors may be counted, with the written approval of a physics advisor.

Total (23 Units)
