The Master of Science in Astronomy & Astrophysics is a full-time two year program based upon 100% coursework. The coursework may be tailored to a student’s needs, and can include astrophysical techniques, astrophysical computing, planetary science, stellar astrophysics, galaxies, cosmology, and courses from cognate disciplines. Many courses contain research or hands-on components that develop skills and knowledge in the latest advances in astronomy and astrophysics. They also offer training in areas highly relevant outside of academia, e.g. project management, computer programing, and problem solving skills. Some of the courses may include the acquisition and analysis of telescope data, the development of theoretical models, or the development and testing of new astronomical instrumentation.
