Space Studies Certificate
A certificate in space studies introduces students to the operational complexities of space ventures. Space activity is a multi-disciplinary industry and coursework in space studies allows students to correlate the space experience to several fields of study. Often political, legal, ethical, historical, scientific and technological aspects are considered when studying space ventures.
The UNG certificate in space studies examines many of these fundamental aspects of space ventures before focusing on satellite remote sensing of the Earth and other planetary bodies, satellite communications and global navigation satellite systems. Students interested in astronomy or astrophysics can find these related space science courses offered through the UNG Physics Department.
Both students majoring in technical and scientific fields; such as, engineering, science, and math, and in nontechnical fields; such as, humanities, business, and social sciences, will find the minor to be a unique and exciting opportunity offered by IESA at UNG.
