The astrophysics concentration is a variation of the professional concentration and is intended for students who have a particular interest in astronomy and astrophysics. In addition to preparing students for possible employment paths associated with the professional concentration, the astrophysics concentration will prepare students to pursue graduate study in astronomy or astrophysics. This concentration has the same mathematics requirements as the professional option and very similar physics course requirements, but it also includes 20 hours of ASTR courses in addition to either PHYS 4312 or PHYS 4350. Majors in this concentration are strongly encouraged to minor in mathematics and devote time to undergraduate research.
