DEPARTMENT OF ASTROPHYSICS AND PLANETARY SCIENCE
The science of astronomy is an exciting and fast-paced field—ranging from interactions between individual atoms in space to the formation and evolution of the Universe itself.
The Department of Astrophysics and Planetary Science is proud to be a part of such a rich field of study. Through our courses, we seek to share an important and fascinating body of knowledge about the nature of the physical Universe—much of which has been discovered only in very recent years—via an active and engaged group of experienced teacher/scholars, who are themselves involved in the acquisition of new knowledge through their own research programs.
Faculty, staff and students have access to a wide range of telescopes, observatories and more to aid their teaching, learning and research activities.
