Degree programmes

Bachelor's programme

The Department of Astronomy offers the Bachelor's program in astronomy in collaboration with the Physics and Mathematics departments. The program provides you with a solid basic education in mathematics, physics and astronomy/astrophysics, and takes  three years (180 ects). Upon successful completion you will obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in astronomy which gives you access to second cycle studies, including our Master's programme in astronomy. As this programme is partly taught in Swedish, you should have a proven knowledge of Swedish to be admitted.

Master's programme

The Master's programme in astronomy provides you with a well-rounded and broad education in astronomy and astrophysics but also with a number of options to specialize in an area of astronomy of your own choice. The two-year programme leads to a Master of Science degree in Astronomy. To enter the programme you should have a bachelor of science degree in astronomy or physics. The Master's programme is entirely taught in English.
