Astronomy

If star-gazing and planetary observation interests you, consider studying astronomy at NMC. You’ll experience classroom learning at the college’s Rogers Observatory, which contains a dome, telescope and darkroom. Located off-campus south of Traverse City — to take advantage of dark skies — the Observatory was built to house astronomy classes as well as to provide an educational program for community groups. As an astronomy student, you’ll brush shoulders with plenty of other like-minded individuals given that the Grand Traverse Astronomical Society conducts regular programs at the Observatory.
