Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees Offered by Colleges

This minor is designed to provide students with a background in astronomy that focuses on answering the fundamental question about our origins that humans have pondered over the ages. Building on an introductory survey of astronomy, students will explore topics in planetary science such as asteroid collisions with the Earth or the science of extrasolar planets. The upper-level requirements will offer students the choice of focusing on the origin and evolution of stars, our solar system, our universe and life elsewhere in the universe.
