The Astrophysics minor provides instruction on the core concepts underpinning our modern understanding of the Universe.

The minor requires the completion of 15 credits as follows:

  1. Required: PHYS 2701, 2702.
  2. Select three of: PHYS 2200, 4096W, 4130, 4150, 4710, 4720, 4730, 4740.

No more than six credits of these courses can be used to count for both the Astrophysics minor and a Physics major. Up to three credits of 3000-level and above courses from other departments or programs may be used to fulfill requirements of the minor, but only in exceptional circumstances and with the pre-approval of the coordinator of the minor.

The minor is offered by the Physics Department.
