Minor In Astronomy

The Minor in Astronomy is an ideal complementary minor primarily for students in two general categories, such as:

  • Students currently majoring in engineering or the sciences.
  • Students who have taken the introductory Math and Physics courses required of engineering and science majors, but have since changed their majors.
While all science students are invited to complete the astronomy minor, students who are not required to complete an introductory sequence of Physics courses as part of their major, may find scheduling more difficult. Students majoring in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics are the main target for this minor.
