Undergraduate Program

Two degrees in astronomy are offered, the Bachelor of Science degree and the Bachelor of Arts degree. The primary difference between the two degrees is that the B.A. degree allows somewhat more flexibility in choice of courses.

Both the B.A. and B.S. degrees provide excellent preparation for graduate studies. There is also a minor program in astronomy.

A broad and substantial background in physics and mathematics with introductory exposure to astronomy is emphasized in the astronomy curriculum. A faculty actively engaged in research provides first-rate instruction and opportunity for undergraduate involvement in research.

And full information on general graduation requirements can always be found in the Undergraduate Handbook and the General Bulletin, both available through the Undergraduate Studies website.
