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.
