Physics Minor

A minor in Physics requires 20 credits in physics courses plus the supporting courses of one year of calculus (MATH 240-241). Ten of the required credits in Physics courses are PHYS 201 (or PHYS 107 and 205) and PHYS 202 (or PHYS 108 and 206). The remaining 10 Physics credits must be selected from Physics courses numbered at the 300- or 400- level, except that PHYS 300 and 339 may not be counted. CHEM 345/347 (prerequisite of CHEM 105-106) may be substituted for five of the upper-level credits; however, course credits may only be counted double with a comprehensive major.


Secondary School Teacher Certification

A teacher recommended for certification to teach Physics by the University of Wisconsin-Superior must have a major or minor in Physics. All teachers also must meet the Professional Education Requirements offered by the Teacher Education Department and must also have a course in the history and philosophy of science. (See the Secondary Education Certification section of this catalog.)
