The Physical Science minor provides students with an understanding of the concepts and principles of applying scientific inquiry to questions about the physical world.  Students will be exposed to a the scientific disciplines of Chemistry and Physics with a specific focus on the laboratory techniques.  The minor is especially valuable for students who want to develop a deeper appreciation of the physical world.

The minor is not solely, or even primarily, for Natural Sciences & Mathematics majors. Students from many allied programs, including Kinesiology, pre-Nursing and Education, often pursue minors within the Division. Students interested in acquiring a minor for teacher certification should first consult with their academic advisor and the Education Division.
