So You Want To Get an Astronomy/Astrophysics Degree

This is what you can expect if you decide to pursue astronomy or astrophysics at university. I started off as an astronomy major so know a lot about the degree program and what it involves. Check out my video about why I decided to major in physics/math instead: ruvid.net/video/video-i-pGHEISg_Q.html
I still think astro is a great choice if it interests you more.

I’m certainly in college for physics and astronomy and I can’t wait for the day I get my PhD, I have a long time to wait but it’s definitely worth the wait, I can’t imagine myself doing anything else with my life
I’m headed to university of calgary in September 2021. I’m gonna get a bachelors, then masters and then a PHD. I’m currently in grade 11 aft the time of this comment.

I would have loved to be an Astronomer but I am useless at maths and therefore Physics, so no chance. I am more interested in observing also and I don't believe a lot of the theories in modern Astronomy I am more inclined to the electromagnetic theory of Stars and that has yet to be accepted by main stream Astronomers.

I like math/physics. Currently I work in a warehouse, but I'm working on my hs calculus credit to get into uni to study astro...

You don't get to a uni unless you survive the destructive damaging counterproductive pressuring arrogance and fear, of the authoritarian school system that is a social disaster. It destroys everything it gets its hands on, as Einstein and Bertrand Russell already saw a century ago. It is not survived or passed by minds who suit learning by free enquiry.

I LOVE the way you explain all of this. I LOVE LOVE LOVE! the universe, but one thing worring me is that, I am not that good at maths like I would love to be. But I am not going to give up. I shall fight till the end. I am passionate about, I feel it! So I shall do it.

I'm majoring in aerospace engineering starting this fall but I'm also drawn to astronomy. Do you guys think astro would be a good minor for someone like me?

So if I study Physics as a scholar in a decent university in Europe, being financially not so wealthy , will I be able to find those types of work you mentioned at the end of the video.. and like... not having to return back to my country? Is it like.. guaranteed ?

The sixth forms I have applied to, none do Computer Science. Will this be a set-back for my application to universities? Planning to go ucl or queen's mary

I really want to go into astronomy as it's my passion but I have never done computer science and I feel that would be quite a setback for me

Im poor... and im dumb, but i love studying space and universe but my parents trying to choose other curses because they dont believe in me :(
So I am planning to further my studies in astrophysics and what A levels should I take. Did some research and some say I should do physics, maths, further mathemathics and chemistry but some sites said that its not necessary to take chemistry, and replace it with computer science. So what should i really take actually? 🤔

Great video. I find it really inspiring and informative. Astronomy has always been a passion for me but never got the chance to get into it. I currently work in IT but I am at a point in my life that I would love to change careers. I hold a bachelors in electronics engineering, a M.Eng with major in telecommunications, and a PhD in network engineering. I am considering in doing a master's degree in Astronomy next. As I can't really afford to be a full time student at the moment, I was thinking in pursuing an online master degree (USQ seems to have a good one). Would I be able to obtain a postdoc or a research position in Astronomy? Or is it necessary to have a PhD in Astronomy? Thanks

Wondering if 49 is too old to study astrophysics and all of the related mathematics/sciences that supports it.

I'm an astronomy undergrad but I've taken calculus 3 two times and haven't passed it. I honestly think I'm just not a person that's good with advanced math (I was fine with it up to calculus). Should I just give up?

Update: just watched your video on making friends to get better grades and I'm devastated to realize it so late. If I would've caught your video even three months ago I might've turned my grades around in calculus this semester. Damnit. Well, it's worth a try next semester. I barely have acquaintances from the clubs I go to though, the prospect of making friends with people in math class is daunting but I have to try something differently.

What are my career opportunities if i end up doing a Phd on this? I really love the cosmos! I am decent in physics and mathematics.
Nandita Sudha Tiwari
I am repeatedly asked by people that "Can You see Our Horoscope? " . I am like What? I Just don't understand from where does this confusion arise.....I have kept on explaining them the difference between the both but my patience level crossed its height when one of my student at Masters Level (Physics) said, Ma'am, you must be frequently asked about people's future? It is so interesting to predict future for others. The moment He said this I was Blown Away and then Exploded. :p :p .

Amazing video... I wish I could go to uni again and study astro physics! Plus, your voice is just most amazing! There is just no better way to learn maths or physics than when you explain it - how can something be so challenging and relaxing at the same time? :D

I love astronomy! Have you considered making a similar video for the amateur enthusiast?

I am very passionate to do ph.d in astrophysics... Now at 10th standard.

I really love astrophysics and you create great videos . Your inspirational astrophysics and astronomy talks motivate me to widen my knowledge . Can you please suggest names of universities which offers course in astrophysics ?

Is it okay that I didn't do computer science in high school? Because its quite too late for me to opt for it and I'm wondering what to do...?
Yes. I am in Canada and all you need to get into astrophysics is english, physics, calculus and vectors, and advanced functions.
