- The requirements for a minor must be completed concurrently with the major degree requirements.
- No minor may be added by completing courses after receiving the bachelor’s degree.
At least six (6) credit hours must be earned in courses acceptable for residence credit by standards set forth by the College of Arts and Sciences, excluding transfer, correspondence, and examination (AP, CLEP, Advanced Standing) credit. Courses for the minor may not be taken Pass/ No Pass.
Students must successfully complete at least 26 hours of courses acceptable for major credit in Astronomy, including at least nine (9) hours at the upper-division level.
No single course may be used by a student to satisfy a major requirement and a minor requirement. A course may be used, however, to satisfy both a major support requirement and a minor requirement.
Requests to substitute a minor requirement must be approved in writing by the Department of Physics & Astronomy.
