The Secondary Major in Astrophysics allows students in other degree programs to broaden their university experience by completing a foundational set of astrophysics courses. Students who complete these requirements will receive a "Secondary Major in Astrophysics" notation on their diplomas in addition to the degree associated with their primary degree program.
Please refer to the Secondary Majors web page for more information.
Note that many courses are offered only in the fall or only in the spring.
