Health Physics (Minor)
To see more about what you will learn in this program, visit the Learning Outcomes website!
The minor will enable students to understand the fundamentals of ionizing radiation safety, radiological control and the dosimetric consequences of nuclear activity to workers, the public and environment. The breadth and depth of the minor is designed to enable students to become a Certified Health Physicist by the American Board of Health Physics during the course of their professional career.
Admissions and Certification of Minor
To be admitted to the program, a student must have a GPA of at least 2.0. Application for admission to any University minor program is now available via MyPack Portal. Admission will be based upon the student’s academic record, and in most cases no longer requires departmental review. Go to Add a Minor to apply.
