Astronomy

Major, Minor

Degree: Bachelor of Arts

Searching for extrasolar planets, observing how galaxies form and evolve, modeling nuclear reactions, contemplating the origin of the Universe — Union College astronomy is all of this and more.

There is no better place to pursue astronomy than Union. Here, your physics and astronomy classes will be small and personal, with labs taught by full-time faculty rather than by graduate students, and instruction that is truly characterized by individual attention. You will also have access to advanced equipment usually reserved for graduate students at larger institutions.
