Students interested in the Physics minor program should consult the Physics minor adviser as soon as possible in order to design a program to meet their special needs.

To provide greater flexibility in selecting electives, students may organize their course of studies to supplement their major programs and/or reflect their special interests. The array of courses should have internal coherence and must be approved by their Physics minor adviser. At least 8 upper-division units must be taken at Towson. A grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher must be earned in each course.
