The Astronomy minor is available for anyone interested in learning about the world outside our own. Astronomy minors complete 22 credit hours of courses offered through the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Courses cover topics such as planetary astronomy, stars and galaxies, astrophysics and modern physics. Astronomy minors also spend time in the ONU Observatory located on the west end of campus. The Observatory was built in 2010 and features a roll-off roof, three pier-mounted, "goto" telescopes, and high-tech CCD cameras for astrophotography.
