If I decide to major in Physics but do a minor in Computer Science as well, am I losing certain physics classes or do I just spend more time getting my degree?

You won't lose any classes. Like you thought, you will just have to take a few more hours before completing. I think a minor is typically around 17 hours or so, so you'll have to take that many hours of CS courses.

A minor is a minimum of 15 credits in a particular field, however, if you are lucky the computer science courses will satisfy any technical electives required by your physics program. You should speak to an adviser about selecting courses that might not only get you a minor but complement your major.
