Astronomy is the study of objects and matter outside the earth's atmosphere and of their physical and chemical properties. A Master’s in Astronomy and Space Sciences offers strong training in a wide range of areas related to science and engineering. Students will gain problem solving skills through introductory research in the field of space science for future use in science, engineering, teaching, and technology professions. Astronomy and Space Science Master’s Degrees have an excellent reputation, both nationally and internationally. Many graduates go on to take a research degree and often find a permanent job in astronomy. Others go on to become science journalists and writers.
