    Default Is there some academic degree for the Astrophysics?



    Which are the best places to study Astrophysics?
    And which would be the academic degree and time necessary to study it?

    You're going to have to go, usually, to a large university. Your undergraduate degree will be, probably, in physics, and then you'll go to graduate school and spend several years getting a PhD in astrophysics. Then you won't get a job.
    Seriously, there's work out there, but it's going to have to be 1) teaching in a university 2) working at an observatory 3) working at a planetarium. And there just aren't that many of 2 & 3 out there.
