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've wanted to study astrophysics for a long time now but I'm so weak at maths physics and computer science 🙁

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 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...
conscience aginBlackadder
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.

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 ?

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? 🤔

Alejandro Ruiz Rivera
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

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?
Milky Wayan

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.

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 .

I am interested in doing MS in astrophysics in USA ! Is it possible ? What is the average score required in general GRE and physics GRE ?? What are the jobs in future are available ? Please reply ! It will be very helpful ! Thank you ! :)
Danish Goldfish
Danish Goldfish 2 years ago
There aren't many MS programs in astronomy. It's mostly PhD programs from what I know. A lot of astronomy programs are starting to not require the physics GRE since it reveals very little about how well students conduct research. The general GRE should be pretty high though, with writing being the most important section. Hope this helps.
Tibees 2 years ago
I cannot comment on the GRE because those tests are not a requirement in Australia where I am studying. In terms of future jobs, outside of academia many astrophysics majors would go on to work in software
