The Department of Space Studies pursues the mission to provide a professional and creative learning environment that fosters development and advancement of the interdisciplinary field of space studies.
To that end, assessment of student learning in the Department of Space Studies is a continuous process that is an integral part of program assessment. Due to our focus on graduate education, there is a strong emphasis both on individual progress and on the communication and interaction of students with their advisors and committee members to ensure achievement of the desired learning outcomes.
The Space Studies Assessment Committee is comprised of faculty, staff, and students in the department to ensure that this professional and creative learning environment allows for students to achieve the desired learning outcomes.
