Astrophysics at Harvard
The Astrophysics Concentration and new Secondary Field in Astrophysics offer small class sizes, the highest faculty-to-student ratio of the physical science departments, and the opportunity to travel to astronomical observatories. Students often pursue a joint concentration with either Physics or Earth & Planetary Sciences. The HarvardSmithsonian Center for Astrophysics, located at 60 Garden Street opposite the Quadrangle, is one of the world's great centers for research in astrophysics, with over 300 scientists and powerful astronomical observatories in Arizona, Chile, Hawaii, and in space. Undergraduate students interested in participating in either termtime or summer research are encouraged to contact Prof. Charbonneau to discuss the numerous opportunities, which range from the hunt for planets orbiting nearby stars to the quest to understand the Big Bang and the accelerating Universe.
