  • Observational astronomy: Techniques for observing and analyzing astronomical objects using telescopes and other instruments.
  • Theoretical astrophysics: The study of the physical laws that govern the behavior of celestial objects, and the use of mathematical models to describe their properties.
  • Stellar astrophysics: The study of the physical properties, evolution, and classification of stars.
  • Galaxies and cosmology: The study of the structure and evolution of galaxies, and the large-scale structure and evolution of the universe.
  • Data analysis and computation: The use of modern computing and data analysis tools to analyze astronomical data and simulations.
The skills that students will develop during the program are:
  • Knowledge of the basic principles of physics and their application to astrophysical problems.
  • Ability to use observational techniques and instruments to observe and analyze astronomical objects.
  • Ability to use mathematical and computational tools to model and simulate astrophysical systems.
  • Ability to critically analyze scientific literature and communicate scientific results effectively.
