The physics major allows an astronomy concentration that is built around advanced courses we offer in astronomy methods and astrophysics.

For research, students can work with our faculty who study planets, stars, and galaxies. Students also can use our facilities to make their own astronomy observations.

For any student interested in taking an astronomy course, we offer two introductory courses in astronomy: The Solar System and Stars, Galaxies, and the Big Bang.
