The University of Michigan Department of Astronomy may have established one of the first research observatories in the Midwest more than 150 years ago, but more than anything, it’s a young and vibrant department. That’s because we’ve spent the last decade hiring exceptional faculty, investing in high-profile facilities, and restructuring our curriculum — all to propel our graduates into the top ranks of the field. We invite you to explore our website or download our graduate viewbook, "The Full Spectrum" to learn more.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the frontlines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Department of Astronomy needs you—because the world needs Victors.
