Physics and astronomy are closely related areas of study.
The B.S. in physics is designed for students who intend to enter graduate programs in physics or astronomy.
The B.A. in physics is well suited for students who plan to enter medical school, become teachers, or double major.
A minor in physics consists of 18 semester hours of physics courses, at least 9 hours of which must be at the upper division level.
The minor in astronomy consists of 19 semester hours of astronomy-based physics courses and their laboratories, as well as 3 hours from astronomy-specific courses.
