Online Programs in Space Studies

Learn from space practitioners through American Military University’s online undergraduate and graduate degrees and certificates in Space Studies, designed by a former NASA astronaut.

American Military University’s coursework is online, allowing adult learners to conveniently access cutting-edge space studies and labs at a distance, regardless of a student’s location.

One of AMU’s crown jewels is a 24-inch/f6.5 Corrected Dall-Kirkham telescope. As a student in the program, you will log in to the university’s state-of-the-art online observatory to collect data.

You can also explore specialized topics regarding space station, satellite, and spacecraft operations, as well as astronomy, space policy, and space exploration. Very few Space Studies academic programs match the breadth and scope of these online programs, which attracts individuals from a variety of professions related to NASA, the United States intelligence community, government agencies, general education, science or military sectors.
