Astronomy Degree

If you do want to become an astronomer, then you will probably need a degree in either Astronomy itself or Physics. Since astronomy contains a lot of physics, many universities now offer degrees in Astrophysics, which combine Physics and Astronomy. Astronomy is the study of the stars, planets, and galaxies that make up our universe. It can be a challenging and rewarding career that could lead to amazing discoveries about the way space works. Astronomy is the scientific study of celestial objects (such as stars, planets, comets, and galaxies) and phenomena that originate outside the Earth’s atmosphere (such as the cosmic background radiation).

If you have a passion for the night sky, you can translate that into a career as an astronomer by getting good grades in physics and mathematics. You should then develop the skills and experience necessary to land a good professional position as an astronomer at an observatory or even a space agency like NASA.

Careers in Astronomy

Become an Astronomer: Astronomy is a good field if you have scientific and analytical skills. If you want the highest chances of getting a job, get a Ph.D. in astronomy, as many organizations, such as NASA, require you to get the degree.

  • Getting the Necessary Education
  1. Get good grades in high school physics, mathematics, and chemistry.
  2. Earn a bachelor’s degree in science, with a focus on astronomy or physics.
  3. Get a master’s degree in science. Most astronomers have a master’s degree in science as well as an undergraduate degree. This degree can take at least two years to complete.
  4. Pursue a Ph.D. in a particular area of astronomy. Doing a Ph.D. gives you the opportunity to study a particular area of astronomy, such as radio, solar, cosmos, or galactic astronomy. You will need to take classes that cover a particular area of astronomy.
  5. Complete your D. dissertation and take the qualifying exams. To get your Ph.D., you will need to create a dissertation proposal. Your dissertation should provide a deep study of a particular topic in the field of astronomy.
  • Developing the Skills and Experience
  1. Study the universe with a telescope. Get a telescope with a big aperture and a wide range of magnification so you can see the stars, the moon, and the galaxies in the universe.
  2. Join an astronomy club or society. Learn more about astronomy by joining an astronomy club at your school or an astronomy society in your area. This will allow you to meet others interested in astronomy and focus more on your goal of becoming an astronomer.
  3. Learn how to use science-related software programs. Take a class on chemistry, physics, or mathematical software programs so you can become proficient at using them.
  4. Get better at working in a team. Participate in class discussions at school or create a study group where you meet and work as a team on assignments.
  5. Improve your writing and public speaking skills.
  • Getting a Position as an Astronomer
  1. Look for a postdoctoral fellowship to be a competitive job candidate. If you earn your D. in astronomy, you can qualify for research positions at a university. These positions allow you to gain work experience and focus on your area of expertise in astronomy.
  2. Get a teaching position at a university. Become a professor of astronomy at the undergraduate or graduate level. Look for open positions at your local university or universities out of state.
  3. Apply for open positions at an observatory. Another option is to apply to work at an observatory as the resident astronomer. Working at an observatory allows you to interact with the public.
  4. Look for positions in the aerospace or computer science industry. Some people who study to be an astronomer end up working in these areas, especially if they do not want to work in academia. These positions may also be ideal if you’d prefer to work directly with other astronomers and scientists on projects.
