Brief description of the degree course
Characteristics and objectives
The course provides an advanced knowledge of observational and theoretical astronomy and astrophysics in addition to a deep knowledge of modern physics and good mathematical and computational skills. At the end, the graduate student will know how to choose the proper observational setup and theoretical model to address an astrophysical problem by acquiring, analyzing, and modeling astronomical data.

Occupational opportunities
Graduate students with a M.Sc. Degree in Astronomy can find a job in companies interested in optics, space technology, scientific instrumentation, software development, and data analysis or they can carry out applied research in industrial laboratories. In general, they can be hired by companies requiring the ability of understanding, analyzing, and modeling complex processes. Graduate students interested in pursuing research in astronomy in universities or research institutions need to complete their studies getting a Ph.D. Degree, while those willing to teach in middle and high schools have to complete their teaching training according to the current regulation on education.
