Astro Group: Undergraduate Program

The University of Utah offers both a minor and a Physics major with an astrophysics emphasis. Here are some resources if you are interested in learning some astronomy:

  • The Astrophysics and Astrophysics Emphasis requirements and Astronomy Minor requirements from the University General Catalog. The full list of Physics & Astronomy courses is given here.
  • The Undergraduate Handbook (click "Undergraduate Handbook" on this page) has both the degree requirements for the minor and astrophysics emphasis.
  • Note that PHYS/ASTR 3070 is the "gateway" course to our astronomy course offerings -- this is offered each fall; other courses may be offered only every two years. Please talk to us if you need help planning your major.
