Learn more about our vast universe and its fascinating contents – planets, stars, comets, galaxies, black holes and more – by taking astronomy courses.  Classes include lectures, activities labs, and outside observation projects.

Astronomy courses are offered as part of the requirements of the Associate of Science degree or may be taken as required or elective courses to complete other degrees.  Students interested in pursuing a degree as ASU, NAU or UA should meet with an astronomy faculty member or advisor to plan their course of study using transfer information.
