Applied Physics (2020)
Applied Physics is designed for students who wish to gain knowledge of fundamental physics concepts as applied to chemistry, geophysics and the life sciences.
Applied Physics is available as a minor.
To complete a minor in Applied Physics, students must gain 60 points in Applied Physics comprising APHYS111, APHYS211, APHYS212 and APHYS311.
Note: There will be no new enrolments into the Applied Physics minor in 2020.
