The 12-14 credit hour Planetary Science Certificate (PlanetS-CT) will prepare undergraduate students to continue in the field of planetary science or planetary exploration. The certificate is designed to enhance both critical thinking and the technical skills necessary for practicing planetary science. You must be enrolled in an undergraduate degree program to complete the certificate.

For all students who are Astronomy and Astrophysics majors or minors, the Planetary Science Certificate can potentially be completed with only two additional courses.
