Halpern, Jules
[ASTR 2900] Frontiers of Astrophysics Research

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Prof. Halpern obviously loves what he does. His knowledge of the field is apparent. This class is a great opportunity to learn a little bit more about what, exactly, astronomers do. Most of the course is conducted as a series of weekly guest lecturers. Some of the material is quite technical, but you do not have to have much background in the subject to take the class. I would recommend it to anyone who is unsure about majoring in astronomy/astrophysics, or anyone who is curious about the work of faculty members.

Workload:

Attend weekly lectures. Write one small paper. Class is P/F
