Offering a physics minor, this program equips STEM students with the critical skills for success in their chosen disciplines.
The study of physics helps you seek and recognize the underlying physical principles in observation of the environment. At Barry, physics courses are designed to meet the needs of students concentrating in science, mathematics, pre-engineering, and the allied health areas. We also provide opportunities for liberal arts students to see the world around them with new understanding.

The Physics minor (minimum of 20 credits) is designed for chemistry majors, mathematics and computer science majors, pre-engineering students, and others with the appropriate mathematics background. The physics minor includes two semesters of university physics (preferable) or college physics with labs and 12 credits of physics above 300 level (excluding PHY 300). Students may count CHE 356 and CHE 357 towards the physics minor. A minimum grade of C is required in all minor courses.
