Physics Minor Requirements

The department offers two minors-- one in physics and one in astronomy.

The following courses are required for the physics minor:

01:750:203-204 (or any other equivalent physics sequence)
01:750:205-206 (or 229-230 or 275-276)
Twelve credits of any 300- or 400-level physics courses. Recommended courses include 01:750:301, 305, 313, 323-324, 341, 342, 397.

The grade-point average for all courses applied toward the minor must be at least 2.0. No more than one D may be applied toward the minor. Three of the four advanced physics elective courses must be taken at Rutgers- New Brunswick.

The following courses are required for the astronomy minor:

01:750:203-204 (or any other equivalent physics sequence)
01:750:205-206 (or 229-230 or 275-276)
01:750:341, 342, and two astronomy lab courses (see this important note about the labs)

The grade-point average for all courses applied toward the minor must be at least 2.0. No more than one D may be applied toward the minor. Three of the four 300-level courses must be taken at Rutgers- New Brunswick. Physics majors or minors who also wish to minor in astronomy must complete 01:750:341, 342, and the two astro labs. These courses may not also be used to satisfy requirements for the major or minor in physics.

Minor in Astrophysics

Astrophysics Minor Requirements

The following courses are required for the Astronomy Minor:

01:750:203-204 (or any other equivalent physics sequence)
01:750:205-206 (or 229-230 or 275-276)
01:750:341, 342, 343, 344

The grade-point average for all courses applied toward the minor must be at least 2.0. No more than one D may be applied toward the minor. Three of the four 300-level courses must be taken at Rutgers- New Brunswick. Physics majors or minors who also wish to minor in astronomy must complete 01:750:341, 342, 343, 344. These courses may not also be used to satisfy requirements for the major or minor in physics.
