Astronomy Minor

Why Minor in Astronomy?

With its scientific rigor and interdisciplinary nature, the astronomy minor is a useful complement to various majors. Students pair this program with other sciences and mathematics in preparation for technical careers and graduate studies. It also works well with majors in the humanities and social sciences, especially if you are interested in jobs that involve interpreting scientific concepts to the public, such as science writer, science public policy adviser or teacher.
