The BA/MA Program in Astrophysics & Space Physics is designed for those well-prepared students who wish to obtain a master’s degree by adding a fifth year of intensive study in astrophysics & space physics. The program is offered by the College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) in conjunction with the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences (GRS).

Because the BA/MA in Astrophysics & Space Physics requires completion of both the BA in Astronomy & Physics and the MA in Astronomy, students interested in the program should refer to the GRS Bulletin website for important information.

For information on application requirements and deadlines, prospective BA/MA students should refer to the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences’ BA/MA and BA/MS Program Application website.
