Career Preparation

Tips for success

Get to know the faculty

We can serve as references and provide letters of recommendation for internships and grad schools.

Plan to start early

If you are interested in a career in astronomy research, plan to start early with an undergraduate research project or summer internship. Most research positions require graduate-level education, and our B.S. degree prepares students to go on to graduate study.


Participate in outreach events with us. Astronomy outreach helps students build strong leadership and communication skills.
