The Astronomy Minor provides students an opportunity to learn about and analyze astronomical phenomena and processes. The Minor explores our current scientific understanding of the solar system, stars, galaxies, and cosmology. In addition, the Minor enhances familiarity and skills in observational astronomy, including telescope data collection, analysis, and interpretation. A Minor in Astronomy provides a background for graduate-level studies in astronomy or work in related fields. Interested students should see an Astronomy Minor Advisor.
