Excellent Overall
May 24, 2017
I am about half-way complete the MSc Space Studies, Aerospace Science concentration. So far the program has been very enjoyable. The flexibility of the university and their responsiveness to my individual needs has been absolutely outstanding, and stands in stark contrast to my experience obtaining my BSc at a brick and mortar university. I was expecting to be required to do much more engineering and mathematics than I have so far. The majority of the ...

Space Studies Master of Science degree
July 26, 2014
I have completed the course work for the Masters degree in Space Studies and will have the thesis project completed shortly. Overall, this was an excellent educational experience and a very good value. The course work is highly interesting and well formatted. There are some terrific instructors, including former astronauts and the co-discoverer of the Hale-Bopp comet, all of whom showed distinct interest in their students. The course materials are relatively inexpensive and many are ...

Great multidisciplinary degree
August 3, 2011
This degree provides excellent grounding all aspects of space studies. There is opportunity to study planetary sciences, aerospace sciences and aspects of the space industry such as mission management. There is plenty of opportunity for research and a lot of opportunity for discussion with other students. My overall experience has been very good.

Challenging, but fun, and a great value!

Great value for a program you will find nowhere else (at least not online). In fact, many of the school's programs have no equivalent in the online world. I've found the faculty very helpful and the coursework interesting. Discussion boards provide for great interaction, and also force one to learn to sharply fashion his or her arguments in writing. The faculty has also been very willing to work with me when work or personal situations ...

I enjoyed this challenging program, a cross between aerospace science and political science!  The courses in Rocket Propulsion and Orbital Mechanics were challenging, and I had a chance to explore the history of space exploration, space policy, space warfare (including ballistic missile defense), as well as current and emerging space powers.  I like AMU so much that, when the post-9/11 GI Bill came out, and I retired too soon to pass my benefit on to my children, I decided to use my newly-found benefit to get a second masters degree (MA in National Security Studies, which is breaking my backside, but very interesting and challenging). is not affiliated with American Military University in any way.
