Students interested in physics can obtain a minor or a concentration in physics, while completing a major in another area within science or in any other program at Trinity Western, such as chemistry, biology, mathematics, computing science. 

Another option is to complete a Multidisciplinary Natural and Applied Sciences major.  This consists of either:

  • a physics concentration along with another science concentration
  • a physics concentration, another science minor, and six semester-hours of another science
  • a physics minor, another science concentration, and six semester-hours of another science

Complementary Studies 

Combining your study of physics with one of the following areas can be exceptionally valuable:

  • Biology (biophysics, nanotechnology, bioengineering, biomechanics, advanced microscopy)
  • Chemistry (quantum chemistry, laser chemistry, physical chemistry, chemical physics, materials science, nanotechnology)
  • Computing Science (quantum computing, advanced electronics, neural networks, pattern recognition)
  • Mathematics (theoretical physics, mathematical physics, applied math)
  • Journalism (science writing)
  • Political Science (science policy, technology & society)
  • Philosophy (philosophy of science, philosophy of physics)
  • History (history of science, history of physics, science & culture)
  • Music (acoustics, electronics)
  • Human Kinetics (biomechanics)
