Minors in Physics

If you are not quite sure you want to major in physics, or you want to enhance your experience at UNCW, consider doing a minor. [See Undergraduate Catalogue for the Physics Minor and the Physical Oceanography Minor.]

Requirements for a Minor in Physics: 18 hours. PHY 201-202, 335 and 6 additional hours in physics, not to include PHY 101, 102, or 105; at least 3 of these additional hours must be at the 300-400 level. A grade of "C" or better is required in each physics course counted toward the minor.

Requirements for a Minor in Physical Oceanography: 21 hours. PHY 201-201, 475, 477, 481 and 1 additional course from PHY 315, 350, 478, 479, 480. GLY 150. A grade of "C" or better is required in each physics course counted toward the minor.
