During the course of the Astronomy programme at Stockholm University you will study advanced courses in astronomy, covering topics such as observational techniques, gas dynamics, stellar structure and evolution, astrophysical radiation processes, cosmology, galaxies, etc. The final part of the degree consists of a thesis project spanning at least six months, giving the opportunity to get more deeply involved in research in a specific area within astronomy.
Astronomers work in many varying areas, including research, teaching, computing and image processing. The program also offers a good foundation for PhD studies.
The programme requires a Bachelor's degree in physics (or equivalent). A Bachelor degree with a major in astronomy is given in cooperation with the physics department at Stockholm University, Fysikum. However, regular bachelor degrees in physics also fulfill the requirements, regardless whether they were awarded by Stockholm University or another institution. Degrees awarded by institutions outside the EEA may also fulfill the requirements.
The first one and a half years of the Master's programme consist of advanced courses in astronomy. The courses cover observational techniques, gas dynamics, stellar structure and evolution, radiation processes, cosmology, galaxies, etc. The final part of the degree consists of a thesis project, giving the opportunity to get more deeply involved in research in a specific area within astronomy. The thesis project gives 30-45 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits.
