Description: A descriptive survey of our understanding of the universe. Topics include the stars, planets, galaxies and the universe as a whole.

This is a non-laboratory course for non-science majors. Students who wish to learn to identify the stars and constellations or those who require a laboratory science course should enroll in AS 103  .
