Astronomy Minor Requirements
Minors in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences are constructed with the following basic requirements: 18 hours in the minor field, with 12 of those hours required to be at a junior/senior level. The specific requirements for the astronomy minor follow:
|PHSX 211 and PHSX 216 (or PHSX 213)||General Physics I/lab||5|
|PHSX 212 and PHSX 236 (or PHSX 214)||General Physics II/lab||4|
|PHSX 313||General Physics III||3|
|PHSX 316||Intermediate Physics Laboratory||1|
|Astronomy and related field electives at the jr/sr level||8 or more|
Students are strongly advised to take Astronomy 391 as their introductory course in astronomy; if students have already taken Astronomy 191 as an introductory astronomy course, they should inquire about taking 3 credit hours of Astronomy 390 instead. Be aware that Astronomy 591 and 592 are only taught in alternate years (Fall odd / Spring even) semesters.
