The University of Denver's minor in astrophysics is for students interested in pursuing graduate work and careers in astronomy, as well as for students interested in learning more about the topic. Subjects include stars, planets and galaxies, and the program will give you a background in both the theoretical science behind astronomy and the methods used in the field.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Denver operates two observatories:

  • Mt. Evans Meyer-Womble, the second highest observatory in the world
  • the late 19th century Chamberlin Observatory, which features a historic 20-inch refractor
