Planetary Science & Astronomy

Main Content



Students in this major will study the Earth system in the context of the Solar System and the universe as a whole.  Students will apply methods and knowledge from mathematics, geosciences, chemistry, biology, astronomy and physics and through laboratory experiences and coursework they will learn both to explore the Earth and to use telescopes to obtain astronomical data. 


Students interested in science education will likely seek a graduate program that will provide a teaching certificate.
