Minor in Astronomy

Curriculum:

The minor in Astronomy requires eighteen (18) hours in Astronomy (ASTR) courses, of which six (6) hours must be advanced.

Notes:

The natural science core requirements for a major (or another minor) must be satisfied by a course sequence other than ASTR 1401/1402 (for example: PSCI 1421/1422, GEOL 1401,1402, PHYS 1401/1402, or PHYS 2401/2402).

It is recommended that students fulfill their mathematics core curriculum requirements for their major before taking ASTR 2301 (by taking, for example: MATH 1340 or MATH 1450).

It is recommended that students take the series PHYS 2401/2402 as their natural science core requirements for their major before taking ASTR 3302.

It is recommended that students fulfill their computer literacy core requirements for their major before taking ASTR 3303 (by taking, for example: CSCI 1380).
