College of the Social and Natural Sciences
The study of space is grounded in the natural sciences. Space exploration, however, requires expertise in additional areas including social sciences, humanities, arts, history, business, law and recreation. The Space Studies program is, therefore, interdisciplinary and broadly based. It accommodates all majors, and the basic science core is accessible to non-science students. The electives help students identify ways in which their majors can be applied to careers in the aerospace industry and in government. A Space Studies' minor enhances teacher preparation at any level, and is valuable preparation for graduate studies.
The prerequisite for admission to the Space Studies minor is completion of the Liberal Education requirement in Science (Area IV, 12 credits).
