Astronomy is concerned with celestial bodies and their structure, origin and fate.
Black holes, comets, the Big Bang, planets around other stars, and even life on other planets are all topics you may encounter in the study of astronomy.
Our courses will give you a better understanding of your place on planet Earth and in universe as a whole. Also, the computational and critical thinking skills that you learn from taking astronomy will help you in other college courses and in your future career.
Finally, space exploration, and new larger telescopes are revolutionizing what we know about planets, stars, and galaxies. So now is the time to take astronomy, either as an online course or in a traditional classroom setting. Stretch your horizons.
