Earning an Astronomy degree is learning to practice a physical science—a study of objects and matter—outside the Earth’s atmosphere. Astronomers use observations to collect data and theory to make sense of it. They rely entirely on observation, unlike physicists and chemists who build laboratories and do experiments.
Recent new discoveries by astronomers have revealed a richer and more varied universe than anyone has dreamed. In the last few years alone, astronomers have discovered dark energy, mapped the shape of the universe, plotted out the world’s earliest years, sent rovers to Mars, and discovered planets around other stars.
The universe is so vast, and its mysteries so deep, that future astronomers will be challenged to ask new and greater questions, and an Astronomy degree from UNK will prepare you to join that effort.
