The department offers a graduate program leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in astronomy. Current research provides opportunities in optical observational astronomy as well as computational theory. Prospective graduate students must submit scores on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Applications are considered holistically; there is no minimum score required to be considered for admission. The Physics GRE is optional. Students are encouraged to submit these scores when available. Further information on the department’s graduate programs, and details concerning financial aid, are available through the departmental office.
Graduate applications in astronomy are normally due by January 15 for admission in the following fall; however, under special circumstances late applications will be considered.
