Information about Study

Astronomical Institute of the Charles University provides teaching for the students of the Master Study in the field of astronomy and astrophysics. Tuition begins in the summer term of the third year of the study with the introductory lectures on the foundations of astronomy and astrophysics. In the further study students attend lectures on stellar astrophysics, celestial motions, solar physics, cosmology, galactic astronomy and so on. The complete list of courses can be found at faculty web pages.

Particular image of the fields of research (international collaboration is very common) can be made if you look at the section Science or at the personal web pages of the staff. Inspiring can be also the list of diploma theses.
