Students using the BRAVO Raman Spectrometer

Astronomy Research

Students in the Astronomy Department have uncommon access to hands-on research projects using state of the art facilities that include the Williston Observatory. There are many opportunities for research in planetary science, astrophysics, and astrobiology: on campus, within the Five College Astronomy Department, and through summer programs at many other institutions such as the Applied Physics Lab and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
