Not everyone who takes Astronomy units at Curtin do so as part of a Science degree. Many students who study disciplines other than Science enrol in Astronomy units. Whether you have an interest in Astronomy, or would just like to know more about our Solar System or the Universe in which we live, Curtin Applied Physics provides units for you. These units do not require high level mathematical skills or a deep knowledge of physics, and there are no pre-requisites apart from a desire to learn.
