The BS in earth and space exploration with a concentration in astrophysics is designed to offer students a fundamental grounding in astronomy and astrophysics, with exposure to the related fields of geology, planetary science and engineering. Students emerge from this program with the skills to pursue a career in astrophysics, physics or related fields.
The rigorous coursework includes a combination of physics courses taught in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the Department of Physics. Students should graduate from the program with the ability to compete at the national level on standardized physics exams. The tools of astronomical discovery are increasingly dependent on technological advances so students will be exposed to engineering principles. Through the capstone project in the senior year, students gain valuable experience in translating science drivers into engineering solutions.
