The minor in geophysics is designed to provide adequate training for professional work or graduate school in geophysics in the broad sense. No more than 10 credits from the geophysics minor may be used to double count with a major. The requirements for the geophysics minor are a minimum of 21 credits, including at least one semester each of geology, mathematics and physics, distributed as follows: 

Required Courses


Choose one of the following: 4 Credit Hours


Choose one of the following elective courses: 3-4 Credit Hours


Additional elective courses permitted upon approval from minor adviser.

Total: 22-23 Credit Hours


Note for Geology Majors


The geology major requires a sequence of math and physics courses (see major program  for details). The following sequence of courses will satisfy the major requirements and is strongly recommended for students interested in geophysics. In particular, MATH 236  is a prerequisite for several courses included in the geophysics minor.
