With this background, you will gain an appreciation of our place in the universe and prepare yourself to understand, respond to, and be leaders in the exciting field of space studies.
Absolutely! The Space Minor is open to any undergraduate student from any major. We recommend you speak with the Space Minor Program Manager and an advisor in your college or program to understand where you stand in completing the requirements of both your program and the minor.
If you are looking to enroll in the Fall, the Pathway to Space class (ASEN 1969) is only offered in the Spring time, however, you are welcome to take any of the elective courses for the minor in the fall.
No need to reapply to the Space Minor. Your acceptance means you meet eligibility requirements and have been formally admitted to the Space Minor. Be sure to register for the Pathway to Space course the following spring semester.
If you’ve been waitlisted for the required Pathway to Space (ASEN 1969) course, this means that course is full and cannot accommodate any more students at this time.
You can still take any of the approved Space Minor elective courses in the meantime and enroll in Pathway to Space the following spring semester.
