Physics, minor

Program Overview

Are you fascinated by the science behind how the physical world works? Do you want to learn more about physics while majoring in another field? If so, you should consider a minor in physics.

A minor in physics is a great supplement to a major in a related field, such as chemistry, biology, computer science, or mathematics. It can provide you with a broader perspective, and ultimately help you in your future studies and career. Studying physics at PLNU means that you are part of a community, and you'll work with other students and faculty members to maximize your learning as you discover who you are called to be.
