Skills and abilities gained with this minor

Perhaps the most valuable skills you will sharpen through a minor in Physics are critical thinking and problem solving skills. A clearer understanding of the laws which govern the physical world and a better developed ability to mathematically model systems are secondary benefits.

Laboratory skills, applied math skills (quantitative ways to look at the physical world), insights into modeling, knowledge of instrumentation used in medicine/chemistry/biology, and the understanding of operation of devices are some of the skills gained with this minor.
