Physics Minor

Many students at Dartmouth find that their educational goals at Dartmouth are best met by majoring in one subject while minoring in a second.

A minor in physics has Mathematics 3, 8, 13, and 23 (or the equivalents),; and Physics 13 and 14 (or 3 and 4, or 15 and 16) as prequisites. Four courses are required in addition to the prerequisites. One of these must be Physics 19 except that students taking Physics 15 and 16 may substitute another elective for Physics 19. The other three must be chosen from physics courses numbered 24 and above, and/or astronomy courses numbered 15 and above, at least one of which must be numbered above 40.
