Any course with the PHYS subject code numbered 2000 or higher may fulfill this requirement. 

The minimum acceptable grade in all courses required for a minor in physics or engineering physics is a C-. Under no circumstances can more than two external courses be transferred toward the minor.


The minor in physics is available at Fordham College at Rose Hill. Students in Fordham's School of Professional and Continuing Studies may minor in physics only if they receive the approval of their advising dean and/or department, and their schedules are sufficiently flexible to permit them to take day courses at the Rose Hill campus.
