My career as a Astronamer
I want to become a astronomer so I can study the stars, space and universe. I also want to do that career because there is a lot of unexplored ares and space and i would like to make discoveries.
Malin Space Science System-Established in 1990, Malin Space Science Systems (MSSS) designs, builds, and operates space camera systems for government and commercial aerospace customers.
first you'll go to college for four or maybe five years to get a bachelor's degree. A bachelor of science (BS) in astronomy is best, but you can still get into grad school with a bachelor of arts (BA), or a degree in physics or even other fields
One of the universities i could go to to get a degree in astronomy would be West Virginia University, in the department of physics. (
West Virginia residents must have at least a 2.0 grade-point average and either a composite ACT score of 19 or a combined Math and Critical Reading SAT score of 910.
Nonresidents must have at least a 2.5 grade-point average and either a composite ACT score of 21 or a combined Math and Critical Reading SAT score of 990.
A second option for universities i could go to would be University of Maryland.
In order to be considered for admission, the Graduate School at the University of Maryland has established a set of minimum admission criteria:
- Applicants must have earned a four-year baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution, or an equivalent degree from a non-U.S. institution.
- Applicants must have earned a 3.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) in all prior undergraduate and graduate coursework.
- Applicants must provide an official hard copy of a transcript for all of their post-secondary work.
One obstacle I will have to overcome to proceed in this career is to make good grades. Another obstacle to overcome would be to get accepted into one of the universities that you can get a physics major in.
I can overcome these obstacles by keeping a clear focus on my goal, and to try hard in school, study and do home work so I can learn and get good grades.
