DescriptionDiscover the scientific study of the universe beyond the Earth. Astrophysics deals primarily with the behaviours, physical properties, and dynamic processes of celestial objects and phenomena. Astrophysicists draw on physics and mathematics to study planets, stars, black holes, galaxies — even the evolution of the universe itself.

Saint Mary’s is a leader in astrophysics research and the only place you can study astrophysics east of Montreal. Learn from professors who are internationally recognized for their work, yet friendly enough to get to know you by name. Your degree will give you practical skills in advanced physics, complemented by a superb grounding in astrophysics. Saint Mary’s is home to two Canada Research Chairs in astrophysics, an NSERC University Research Fellow and the Institute for Computational Astrophysics (ICA). In the last decade, the astronomy department was awarded $5.5million in research funding from Canada’s granting agencies.
