Minor in Astronomy

The minor in astronomy is designed to provide a training in astronomy for students with a range of backgrounds.

Science majors can choose from a variety of specializations connecting to other fields (see Option A at the link below), such as astrobiology, astrochemistry, astrostatistics, or planetary science.

Students in other disciplines may still obtain a firm grounding in basic astronomy and physics, supplemented with relevant courses from other fields (see Option B at the below).

For more details see the official entry for the astronomy minor in the WKU Undergraduate Catalog below:

 A community of faculty, staff, and students engaged in better understanding the physical world.
