Astronomy Minor

A minor in astronomy is offered to students who are preparing for a career in astronomy or astrophysics or to those who are interested in an in-depth survey of modern astronomy. The minor is open to students with a major in any discipline.


PHYS 122  is a prerequisite for PHYS 304 , and PHYS 304  is the prerequisite for PHYS 415  and PHYS 416 . In PHYS 415  and PHYS 499H , students will gain some hands-on experience with real data extracted from recently-archived data, or obtained using the department’s 0.8 meter Cassegrain telescope. Students pursuing the astronomy minor will be assigned an astronomy advisor in the Department of Physics.
