Astronomy is perhaps the oldest science that investigates the fundamental physical and chemical laws that govern our solar system, universe, and all of nature.
The astronomy courses are designed to meet the general education and major transfer requirements for the physical sciences.
Traditional teaching may be supplemented with computer and Internet-based instruction. Laboratory activities provide “hands-on” experimentation and discovery into the natural, physical and chemical characteristics of the earth and our universe.
Computer-based data acquisition and analysis may assist in some lab instruction.
