Several courses are offered to suit persons of diverse backgrounds and depths of interest. Two beginning courses ( ) require no special knowledge of mathematics or other sciences and are best suited to students taking non-science programs. These courses develop an understanding of the universe in a qualitative way and in terms of natural laws familiar to us on Earth. Audiovisual demonstrations are used extensively. is an introductory astronomy course for science students. The course is intended for students in other areas of the sciences. is best suited to life science students. The remaining courses are designed for physical sciences and astronomy program students. The first physics and math based astronomy courses normally start in the second year. In some of these courses, the objective is to provide for practical involvement by the student. This is achieved by the use of the remotely-controlled telescopes at the St. George and Scarborough Campus observatories by day as well as by night. The Department works closely with two related academic units, the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (CITA) and the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics (DI). With a national mandate, CITA fosters research in theoretical aspects of the discipline, including the exploitation of high performance computers in house and in SciNet. Complementary to this, a focus of DI is on the design and development of astronomical instrumentation. Undergraduate students will find diverse research opportunities through the Department and these two cognate units.

    zSB(3,3) The terms astronomy , astrophysics and astrology are often used synonymously, even though they have very different meanings.
    Astronomy Versus Astrophysics
    The difference between astronomy (literally star law in Greek) and astrophysics (derived from the words star physics) comes in what the two disciplines are trying to accomplish. Astronomy seeks to determine the laws that govern the motion and origins of the heavenly bodies (stars, planets, galaxies, etc.). Whereas astrophysicists are more concerned with studying the physical processes that lead to the creation of stars and galaxies, as well as learning what drives their emission and evolution. The two are definitely interrelated, but are clearly trying to answer different questions. Despite this, the two terms have become somewhat synonymous in recent years. This can be attributed to the fact that most astronomers receive the same training as astrophysicists, including the completion of a graduate program in physics (although there are several very good pure astronomy programs still taught throughout the country).

    About the CSWA
    The Committee on the Status of Women in Astronomy was established in 1979 and consists of eight rotating members with 3-year terms. Our charge is to recommend to the AAS Council practical measures that can be taken to improve the status of women in astronomy and encourage their entry into this field. We have several print and electronic publications and have held two international meetings about the status of women in astronomy. We encourage you to look around, and to submit articles and items of interest about women in science and related topics. Women are especially urged to enter their information in the Women in Astronomy database, which can be used to search for colloquium or conference speakers and job applicants.
    The Baltimore Charter and Pasadena Recommendations
    The Baltimore Charter and Pasadena Recommendations are documents produced as a result of the Women in Astronomy Meetings held in Baltimore in 1992 and Pasadena in 2003 . The first document describes a code of conduct governing gender issues, particularly aimed at U.S. institutions, while the latter document is a set of recommendations for institutions hoping to achieve true gender equity. The links to the individual documents and meetings provide much more information.

    373 W. Geneva St, Williams Bay WI 53191 (Latitude 42 34.2, Longitude -88 33.4) The birthplace of modern astrophysics
    Yerkes Observatory is a facility of the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics of the University of Chicago . It was established in 1897 on Geneva Lake in Williams Bay, Wisconsin. Until the mid-1960's, Yerkes Observatory housed all of the Department's activities. Today the 77-acre, park-like site in southeast Wisconsin provides laboratory space and access to telescopes for research and instruction.
    Yerkes Observatory occupies a unique niche for the education and the scientific community. It bridges several important perspectives in formal and informal education. The history of astronomy and astrophysics of the observatory is a solid foundation for introducing all the important topics in current research as well as the practice of observational astronomy. There is a huge range of opportunities for learning. Because of Yerkes' historical context, the world of professional and student astronomers and astronomy educators are drawn to the observatory. These communities learn from one another, build relationships, and create programs, which result in enriched experiences and learning opportunities for young and diverse members of our society.. Yerkes Observatory is open for free public tours every Saturday throughout the year (except on December 25, 2010 and January 1, 2011) and offers
