Top Master Degrees in Astronomy in Europe 2019

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized 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.

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:... [-]
