- 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.
