After developing a solid grounding in science and mathematics from the core units in first year, this specific group of units allows you to pursue a breadth minor in Physics.
This minor is appropriate for students undertaking major studies in a range of science discipline areas who wish to complement their studies with some training in Physics. Completion of these units will provide students with hand-on laboratory experiences in electrical circuits and optics, and complementary theoretical knowledge in topics such as radiation and lasers (and an appreciation of the relevance of these skills to chemistry and biotechnology). The units in this minor cover the topics in VCE physics Units 1-4 and are ideal for students wishing to pursue a career in physics teaching.
