Astronomy Colloquium

The Department of Astronomy hosts a weekly colloquium during the academic long semesters that invites a guest speaker to meet with faculty, researchers, postdocs, and graduate students and give a talk on their current research in their field of expertise.

Research Seminars

Research in the Astronomy program is loosely divided into five research groups designated as the Extragalactic, Interstellar, Planetary Systems, Stars, and Theory groups. To promote interaction between different research groups, some groups (e.g., Planetary Systems and Interstellar) hold joint seminars, and only a few research groups offer their seminar for credit each semester (e.g. Extragalactic and Theory in the fall semesters, Stars and Interstellar/Planetary Systems in the spring semester). We have also set up the Cosmos Seminar for interdisciplinary talks that cut across the interest of many research groups.
