This online program is designed by practitioners including former NASA astronaut and Dean of Science and Technology Dr. James Reilly, veteran of three shuttle missions and five spacewalks. Students in the Space Studies program also have the opportunity to learn from former astronaut and current professor, Wendy Lawrence, veteran of four shuttle missions. Whether you’re new to the space or aeronautical field or you’re an industry professional, you can choose to pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree or certificate.
The university is entirely online, allowing adult learners the ability to fit cutting-edge space studies curriculum into their busy lives. The program utilizes labs at a distance and students learn a composition of aeronautical and space science, operations, and public policy studies. Students have the flexibility to expand their interests in specialized topics regarding space station, satellite, and spacecraft operations, as well as astronomy and space exploration. Very few space studies academic programs match the breadth and scope of this innovative online program, which attracts individuals from a variety of professions related to NASA, the United States intelligence community, government agencies, general education, science or military sectors.
