After finishing your undergraduate studies, you should consider taking a master's degree. This higher level of education has an increased priority in careers and specialized learning. It is an excellent opportunity to help you kickstart your career.

What is an MSc in Space Sciences? This is a multidiscipline field that incorporates nearly all areas of outer space. This includes exploration of the origin of the universe, space travel technologies, astrophysics, planetology, satellite communication, and others. It is important to note that the one area this does not include is actually travelling to space, but astronauts often begin in this field because a very strong understanding of all these topics is vital before more rigorous training is started.

Students working in space sciences enjoy the benefit of having many different branches of study at their fingertips. You will be able to choose from many different applications of your degree. Helping to bring the stars a little closer and furthering our understanding of the universe is also very fulfilling work. 

Space sciences is a very intensive focus, so tuition for most programs tend to run relatively higher. That said, there still is a lot of variation depending on university, country, online or offline status, program, and length of study, so you should find a school that fits your needs.

It is an exciting time to work in the field of space travel and studies. It is still possible to find work with a government organization, but for the first time, there are independent companies that are starting to explore space travel as well. Possible careers include spacecraft engineering or design, research, education, consultation, and aerospace or aeronautical engineering. It is usually easiest to live in a country with a strong space program, but that restriction is quickly fading.

Start working toward your master's degree. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
