Program description

Master's Degree in Astrophysics

The Canary Islands are known for their special atmospheric conditions which create the opportunity for top-quality astronomic observations. This along with the ULL Department of Astrophysics, multiple observatories, and large number of researchers and teachers make this an excellent location to get a Master in Astrophysics. 

The Master program has three areas of focus that are created based on rigid subject choices, itineraries and options. The three special areas are Material Structure, Theory and Computing Specialty, and Observation and Instrumentation.
