Physics, Minor

The undergraduate minor in physics requires a minimum of 15 s.h. in physics coursework, including 12 s.h. taken at the University of Iowa. Students must maintain a grade-point average of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor and in all UI courses for the minor. Coursework in the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass.

The 12 s.h. taken at the University of Iowa must be chosen from these:

Course # Title Hours
PHYS:1612Introductory Physics II4
or PHYS:2703 Physics III
PHYS:2704Physics IV3-4
Physics courses numbered 3000 or above

Both PHYS:2703 Physics III and PHYS:2704 Physics IV have prerequisites, as do most physics courses numbered 3000 or above. Students must complete a course's prerequisites before they may enroll in the course.
