Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

Students who have completed University Physics 211, 211L, 213, 213L, and Calculus 123, 123L, 125 125L with an average grade point of 3.0 in these classes and who have permission from their faculty mentor will be admitted into the research minor.

Note - Research


The student will pick a faculty mentor based on research interests, and the mentor and student together will choose two other faculty to serve on the student’s committee. An oral presentation of the research results is required. The faculty mentor will determine the appropriate seminar, colloquium, symposium, or conference for the student’s oral presentation.

Program Requirements


Restricted Electives - 12 semester hours


Twelve semester hours of electives not from the major, but supportive courses selected by the committee. Since there is no Physics major in the curriculum, it is anticipated students majoring in mathematics, chemistry, environmental physical science, or biology may select this minor.
