The graduate program in Astronomy and Astrophysics is offered by the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics, leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy.
Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics is actively engaged in a wide
range of observational and theoretical research on solar system
dynamics, stars, stellar systems, the interstellar medium, the Galaxy,
galaxies, quasars, clusters of galaxies, cosmology, and problems in
general relativity. The Department has close ties with the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (CITA) and the Dunlap Institute, which further enhance the
opportunities for our students to interact with leading researchers.
Faculty and students use the major optical, radio, and satellite observing facilities of the world. We have an active experimental program using telescopes on long-duration stratospheric balloons and a complementary program designing and building instrumentation for optical, millimetre, and radio telescopes.
There are approximately 100 faculty,
postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and staff in the Department of
Astronomy and Astrophysics, CITA, and Dunlap Institute. Students benefit from
direct interactions with the broad range of external speakers invited to
weekly seminar programs and colloquia.
