Astronomy Classes

For the health and safety of our community, all college offices have moved services online through July 30. We will begin offering in-person services by appointment only Aug. 2 through Sept. 3.

Employees are serving students and the community remotely during this time. Please check back for updates about services available online, by email, or phone. Summer quarter resources are available at edmonds.edu/summer2021. All college updates, resources, and information about COVID-19 is available at edmonds.edu/coronavirus.

We’re now live! We launched ctcLink — a new self-service portal and mobile app — to better serve our students. Activate your account now! Click here to look up your ctcLink ID.

Astronomy is the study of the Universe — an examination into the beginning of time and throughout space. Astronomers ask how stars and solar systems form and evolve, how galaxies form, how the elements arose, what the structure of the Universe is, and how the Universe began. Studying astronomy requires an understanding of mathematics, physics, and chemistry.

For students planning graduate work in Astronomy, a Bachelor's degree in Physics with an Astronomy Minor, or an Astro-Physics degree, is recommended. At Edmonds College, students should use the Associate of Science Physics planning sheet.
