Astronomy

A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

A Master in Astronomy teaches the fundamental concepts of modern astronomy. It is applied to the study of asteroids, comets, planets, interstellar and -galactic matter, quasars, star formation, nebulae, stars in all stages of their evolution, white dwarfs, neutron stars, the chemical and physical evolution of galaxies, etc.

Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents. Comprising the western most point of Eurasia, Europe is usually divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas.

Astronomy arose before the fascination of the human being for the starry sky. As a current science, it responds immediately to the technological advances that determine the spectacular discoveries in the knowledge of the cosmos of which we are witnessing.

Definition of the program

The objective of the Master's Degree in Astronomy and Astrophysics is to provide students with in-depth knowledge of contemporary astronomy, both in terms of the constituents of the universe and the most current observational techniques used in the exploration of the cosmos. It covers theoretical and technical aspects related to the most advanced technologies, the use of detectors and the analysis of the data obtained.... [-]


Master in Astronomy and Astrophysics: Gravitation and Astroparticle Physics

University of Amsterdam
Campus Full time 24 months September 2019 Netherlands Amsterdam

The two-year track Gravitation, Astro-, and Particle Physics (GRAPPA) in the Master’s programme Physics and Astronomy, a joint degree with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, stands at the intersection of theoretical physics, experimental (astro)particle physics and astrophysics. [+]

The two-year track Gravitation, Astro-, and Particle Physics (GRAPPA) in the Master’s programme Physics and Astronomy, a joint degree with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, stands at the intersection of theoretical physics, experimental (astro)particle physics and astrophysics. Students benefit from a highly collaborative international research environment. Current research topics include gravitational waves, collider-based particle physics experiments and dark matter detection, and the staff is involved in several large international research projects.

Is GRAPPA in Amsterdam the track for me?

The GRAPPA track is for ambitious students interested in gravitation, astroparticle and particle physics. You are intrigued by both the subatomic scale (e.g. the Standard Model, particle interactions) and the largest scales (e.g. astrophysical objects, the Universe), and are particularly interested in combining the two to address some of the biggest puzzles in science. Furthermore, you:... [-]
