  • Physics

    The physics minor consists of the complete sequence in general physics, modern physics and two 3000/4000-level courses in the physics major course sequence. Students should consult a physics advisor and obtain the required approval no later than the beginning of the junior year.

    About this Minor

    All 3000/4000-level courses must be taken from the UF Department of Physics. Students must complete a minimum of six credits of coursework exclusive to the minor that cannot count toward the major(s) or other minors.

    Students pursuing an astronomy major must complete six credits of physics coursework beyond what is required for the astronomy major before they will be approved for the physics minor.

    PHY 3400, PHY 3840L, PHY 4905 (Individual Work), and PHY 4911 cannot count toward this minor.
