Undergraduate Astronomy and Astrophysics at Columbia


If you are interested in taking classes or majoring in Astronomy or Astrophysics, come and talk to us as soon as you can. Contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies of our department, or contact me (currently, that is the same person).

In addition to taking classes with world-renowned astronomers, you will have the opportunity to pursue real, active research in a wide variety of observational, theoretical, or instrumental topics. Given the makeup of our department, you will likely be working very closely with one (or more!) of us.

Contact any one of us to talk about doing research. You can find a flyer for the Department of Astronomy here. If you are curious about my own work, and what sort of projects you could do, check here.
