EPO Activity: Astrobiology Undergraduate Minor at Penn State University

Project Progress

Undergraduate students at Penn State can participate in the Astrobiology Undergraduate Minor, which is designed to educate students in the varied scientific disciplines that contribute to our general understanding of life, the origin of life, the past history of life on Earth, possible futures for life on Earth, and the possible existence of life on other planetary environments. The principle goal of the minor is to develop students literacy in astrobiology so that they can critically evaluate claims related to this field.
