Undergraduate Studies

Astronomy as a discipline is a distinctive integration of many of the sciences. A graduate in astronomy has a wide grounding in modern physical science which is important for a wide range of roles in society. The Department offers a wide range of astronomy courses that serve both as university breadth requirements and toward astronomy-related degrees.

Our undergraduates are also engaged in exciting, front-line researches in all subfields of astronomy and astrophysics.


Graduate Studies

With a nominal completion time of 5 years, our direct-entry PhD program focuses on training students to do first-class research in observational astronomy, theoretical astrophysics, and astronomical instrumentation. Options for graduate research are greatly expanded by the presence of our sibling units, CITA, CPS, and the Dunlap Institute.

Besides research, our students enjoy living in multicultural Toronto, and are actively engaged in science outreach.
