NSU is one of the few HBCU with an astronomical observatory and a minor in astronomy. The Department of Physics at NSU offers a minor in astronomy that complements the B.S in Physics (but it is also open to other science students). Field work is done with the RRRT and several introductory and advanced courses are offered on campus. The Department also offers courses and workshops for middle and high school teachers. Several small telescopes and other auxiliary equipment allows astronomical observation on campus. The campus Planetarium complements our astronomical curriculum for many courses offering a description of the night sky and full-dome shows and presentations on current topics of modern astronomy.
