Combine your strengths

Whether you want to complement another science or mathematics major with a minor in physics, or your heart lies in the humanities or teaching and you feel that physics will be a solid addition to that degree, declaring a physics minor may be just the match for your degree plan.

It's an obvious fit for pairing with another science discipline, but areas like science journalism and business management in a technology based industry also find tremendous need for individuals with experience in both scientific methods and analytical problem solving.
