PEAK Minors

PEAKS | NSM

The fundamental nature of physics makes an understanding of its principles, techniques and limitations important in the acquisition and extension of knowledge in all the sciences. In addition, it has historical connections to metaphysics and natural philosophy, which makes it an integral part of a balanced liberal arts curriculum. Physics minors should recognize and gracefully accept that an ability to acquire and use mathematical tools is an assumed part of their minors.
