In addition to knowledge of astronomy, students obtain competence with respect to organisations, people in organisations and the establishment and management of processes. The first year of the track focuses on astronomy; in the second year the student will specialise in Science-Based Business. The Leiden MSc in Astronomy focuses on: Knowledge and understanding of the origin, structure, and evolution of galaxies, including processes in their nuclei, as well as the universe they are part of; Knowledge and understanding of the origin, structure and evolution of stars, including the interstellar medium, circumstellar gas and dust, and planetary systems. These goals are approached by means of courses teaching knowledge of the various fields and insight into their mutual connections, and through research projects in which the student focuses on one or more aspects of ongoing research carried out by staff and postdocs. The Leiden programme is particularly known for its emphasis on the interface between observation and theory: interpretation, modelling and simulation.
