Physics Minor - ARCHIVE

Penn State Erie, The Behrend College (PHYBD)

PROFESSOR ROGER F. KNACKE, Director

Physics is the fundamental science from which many fields of engineering and science developed. With the increasing pace of technological change, solid understanding of basic physics can make the student adaptable and competitive in a rapidly changing workforce. The minor in physics (PHYBD) can be valuable to students seeking careers in engineering, chemistry, medicine, teaching, or computing. Many science or engineering majors can earn a physics minor with as few as ten additional credits. The minor can be tailored to specific interests with courses such as optics, quantum mechanics, solid-state physics, or electronics.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
