Computational Physical Science Minor


Students who complete this program will be prepared to use computer modeling and numerical methods to provide understanding of physical and chemical processes and to make predictions regarding the outcomes of such processes.

Minor requirements include:


A total of 5 computational physical science courses, no more than one of which fulfills a requirement of the student’s major, must be completed to meet the requirements of this minor.  A student must earn:

  • a grade of C or better in each of the 5 courses required for the minor
  • earn an average grade of 2.00 (C) or better in the aggregate of the 5 courses and
  • Take MA370 Numerical Analysis/Scientific Computation and PH321 Formal Logic, and
  • 3 technical electives form the list of courses below subject to the following contraints by major:

Physics and Chemistry Majors:  One of the technical electives must be a computer science course and the others must be from among the computer science and mathematics courses.

Computer Science Majors:  One of the technical electives must be a physical science course and the others must be from among the physical science and mathematics courses.

Mathematics Majors:  One of the technical electives must be a physical science course and the other two must be computer science courses.

All Other Majors:  One of the technical electives must be a physical science course, one must be a computer science course, and the third technical elective must be either a mathematics course or another computer science course.
