Overview

Drawing on astronomical observations, physical models, chemical constraints, and geological interpretations, students consider the Earth in its planetary context, the processes that have shaped Earth and other planets through time, and our place in the Universe. 

Students of Astrogeophysics programme of Colgate University learn to appreciate or participate in the ongoing discovery of planets throughout the galaxy, and to reflect critically on their similarities with and differences from our own world. 

Key facts:

Astrogeophysics majors develop intellectual tools from across the physical sciences to reason qualitatively and quantitatively about global issues, such as the accelerating pace of global change and planetary habitability. 

Interested students should consult the program director as early as possible to plan an appropriate sequence of courses, since many of the required courses have prerequisites.
