What You’ll Learn

This minor is designed to be accessible to students in a wide range of degree programs, from physics majors hoping to pursue graduate studies in astronomy to humanities or social science majors with a general interest in the sky.

Anderson Hancock Planetarium

The Anderson Hancock Planetarium at Marietta College is just one of a handful of planetariums in the country to feature the Goto Chronos hybrid system, which can replicate the night sky from thousands of years in the past to thousands of years in the future, and from countless vantage points in the Universe.

Astronomy Minor

Accessible to science and non-science majors, the Astronomy minor introduces students to the cosmos. Students planning to work in secondary education, as well as Physics majors intending to continue their studies in graduate school, will find the Astronomy program beneficial.
