Astronomy is the science of the celestial bodies - their motions, positions, distances, magnitudes and relationships to earth. Pierce College offers introductory courses in astronomy for students who are interested in the study of the moon, planets, stars, nebulae, and galaxies. Students who wish to pursue a transfer degree with studies in earth and space sciences are encouraged to complete requirements for the AA-DTA degree and to check with their transfer institution regarding specific requirements and transferable credits.
