Astrophysics is an important and well-represented sub discipline in physics. It includes the study of the solar system, galactic and extragalactic astrophysics, as well as cosmology. A minor in this field combines a theoretical approach with observational analysis. There is opportunity to do research in this field as well. The physics department offers minors in physics, biophysics, and astrophysics. However, it is not possible to receive a minor in more than one of these fields. Also, physics majors may elect to receive the astrophysics or biophysics minor from the department, but not the physics minor.
