While the Master’s programme in Astronomy is primarily aimed at training researchers, many graduates find employment in the public or private sector. Astronomy graduates are well-trained problem-solvers, skilled in astronomy, physics, mathematics, IT and computing science. To enable students to gain additional experience in business and economics as well as to follow a company internship, a special Master’s programme ‘Business and Policy’ profile has also been designed.
The objective of the Groningen Master’s degree programme is to give students the best opportunity for participation in major European or global astronomical research projects, in PhD programmes, and in professions dealing with astronomical instrumentation and informatics. The curriculum as well as the career prospects are being monitored continuously, and are consistently evaluated very positively. Dutch Astronomy graduates in general, and Kapteyn graduates in particular, have excellent career prospects, within and outside science.
