Cognate/Minor in Space Studies

The Department of Space Studies invites students from other programs who wish to expand their program of study to include a space-related focus. Our program includes a multidisciplinary set of course offerings that integrate well with other graduate programs. Students interested in space engineering, space business, space law, space policy, space science, space life sciences, space history, or military space can be accommodated. To complete a cognate or minor at the master’s level, students must take three courses for nine semester hours of credit. Our department will work with those doctoral students whose department requires additional credits for a minor degree.
