Space……Not Just for Astronauts
The UND Space Studies degrees are your best choice when preparing for a career in the space industry. Our Master of Science and Ph.D. programs are multi-disciplinary and include disciplines such as planetary science, space engineering, life support systems, space policy and law, space history and space-related aspects of business and management. Unlike a typical aerospace engineering degree, the Space Studies degrees provide the student with the broader background necessary to understand the linkages between engineering, space science, and policy.
