TOTAL MINOR HOURS: 12
The Astronomy Minor provides an in-depth overview of Astronomy from a mainly conceptual perspective. Any student wanting to learn more about the universe can earn the Minor in Astronomy regardless of their degree, including physics majors.
A minor in Astronomy consists of 12 credit hours.
A minimum 2.0 GPA average in the 12 credit hours is required for obtaining this minor.
A “C-” is the minimum acceptable grade for any course in the minor.
None of the courses for the Astronomy minor count towards a Physics B.A. or B.S., and consequently Physics majors may earn a minor in Astronomy along with their Physics B.A. or B.S. degree.
