Depending on their major program (BSc180, BSc150, BSc120), students may need to select a minor program. For a BSc150 students must complete a 30 ECTS credits minor. For a BSc120 students must complete a minor for 60 ECTS credits (two minors for ECTS credits each is also possible). They may select any minor offered at either UZH or ETH. Grades in a minor are determined by an average of the grades received in modules, which are weighted according to how many credit points the modules were worth. Every successfully completed minor along with the grade received will be shown in the bachelor or master’s diploma.
During their master’s studies with a 90 ECTS credits major, students may select a 30 ECTS credits minor subject. In this case, the master’s program involves a total of 120 ECTS credits and the standard duration increased by one semester.
We especially recommend the following minors for physics students:
- Computational Science
- Simulations in Natural Sciences
