The undergraduate certificate in Space Studies looks at spaceflight history, evolution, exploration, astronomy, and orbital mechanics. This online certificate also surveys the government and industry participants from the space race starting in the ‘60s through today. The curriculum for this online certificate was originally designed by former NASA astronaut and Dean of Science and Technology Dr. James Reilly, veteran of three shuttle missions and five spacewalks.
