College of Health and Human Services

There are two minors offered in the Physics program: 1) a specialized twelve upper-division credit hour Physics of Medicine minor designed for students interested in pursuing a health care career, and 2) a traditional minor consisting of twelve upper-division credits (two three-credit-hour 3000- or 4000-level PH courses, plus two three-credit-hour 4000-level PH courses).

The Physics of Medicine minor (POM) is available to students interested in medicine and health care to deepen their understanding of physics principles and the applicability of those principles to the field of health care.
