Astronomy is the study of celestial objects and the universe as a whole. Combining classes in physics, light and physical optics, planetary geology and more, the astronomy minor at Morehead State complements a wide range of majors.
The bachelor's degree in Earth System Science provides the knowledge and the skills to make observations and informed interpretations about the nature of the Earth and its relation to human activities. The geologic history and processes that drive the earth system (Plate Tectonics and Climate) provide insights that permit predictions relevant to natural resource management, geologic hazards and basic land use. The area of concentration is intended for students who desire rigorous, broad-based preparation in most of the subdisciplines within geology. This program is strongly recommended for students who wish to attend graduate school in a geosciences area.
The integrated science minor is a good supplement to a variety of science-related degree programs, including earth science, space science, biology and chemistry.
Space science is an extremely interdisciplinary and technology-intensive discipline which encompasses physics, astrophysics, satellite telecommunications, electrical engineering, mathematics and computer sciences.
