Students with an interest in astronomy or in astrophysics may take courses in the astronomy program, a joint program with the physics departments at Harvey Mudd College and Pomona College. As part of the astronomy program, the participating colleges maintain facilities at the Table Mountain Observatory, located about one hour from campus in the San Gabriel Mountains. Equipment includes a 40-inch telescope with a photometer, CCD camera, IR camera, and CCD spectrograph. No major in astronomy is available at The Claremont Colleges; interested students normally major in Physics .
