In this introductory course, students investigate the nature of the universe and how we know about it. Concepts of scientific evidence and justification, structure and evolution, and understanding humanity’s place in the universe are emphasized as we learn about the solar system, stars, galaxies, and cosmology.

Students develop an understanding of and ability to practice techniques in observational astronomy, including the practice of night sky observation and spectroscopic analysis. They pursue independent projects investigating astronomical phenomena of their choice and hone their scientific presentation and communication skills.
