INTRODUCTORY ASTROPHYSICS: SOLAR SYSTEM

This course presents a broad introduction to the science of astronomy and astrophysics. It is designed to be a two-semester sequence with the first semester (ASTR120) concentrating on our Solar System and the second semester (ASTR121) focusing on our Galaxy and the wider Universe. The intent of this course is to give the student a solid background in the primary physical concepts relevant to astronomy, and a broad exposure to the astronomical Universe. This course is for science majors or those with a strong interest in science.
