We have 13 Masters Degrees in Planetary Science

Masters degrees in Planetary Science study the physical components of the Solar System, and as well as the measurement of the Earth and its gravitational field.

Related postgraduate specialisms include Space Science and Technology, and Astronomy and Astrophysics. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate subject such as Physics.

Why study a Masters in Planetary Science?

Planetary Science is a broad field which studies not only planets, but the systems that they’re a part of, as well as the objects with which they interact. More specifically, courses in this field explore the particles, processes, and forces which form these objects, as well as their historical development.

From micrometeoroids, to moons, starts, and gas giants, you’ll take an interdisciplinary approach to your studies. A combination of theory and methodology is drawn from fields such as Geochemistry and Geophysics, Atmospheric Science, Oceanography, Hydrology and Glaciology.

Careers in this field are highly varied, but many planetary physicists work within national research centres to take part in activities such as space exploration and experimental laboratory research, as well as the development of technologies such as satellites and robotics.
