Welcome to the Department of Astronomy!

Astronomy is the study of the universe to understand how it works and how it came to be. The Department of Astronomy at New Mexico State University is a leading group in many areas of astronomical research and education. We offer a PhD in various theoretical and observational astronomy fields. Of particular interest may be our operation of the Apache Point Observatory. Please explore our site and learn about the exciting work we are doing.
