Our program focuses on astrophysics and planetary science. You will be encouraged to think independently and will benefit from our proximity to world-class Lowell Observatory and the university's own new twenty-inch research-class telescope. If you want to search for planets outside the solar system, you'll receive the guidance needed at Northern Arizona University. Find your way to questions you haven't yet learned to ask.
