- ASTRO 322: Galactic and Extragalactic Astrophysics
This course covers the interacting astrophysical processes that lead to the cycles of formation and evolution of galaxies. Using our own Milky Way as a starting point, the course focuses on stellar populations, the interstellar medium (gas and dust), dark matter, and black holes. The introduction of observations across the electromagnetic spectrum (from radio waves to gamma-rays), as well as astronomical techniques will reinforce what we know with how we know it.

- ASTRO 120: Astronomy of the Solar System
This course focuses on exploring our knowledge of astronomy and astrophysics of the Solar System, as well as open questions in the field. We will discuss the origin, evolution and nature of the Earth, the other planets, and non-planetary bodies in our Solar System. Through this lens, we will develop understanding of astronomy and astronomical techniques, while considering both what is currently known and recent results obtained from the latest observatories and exploratory missions.
