Astrophysics Prerequisites Question

  1. Jan 11, 2013 #1
    I'm interested in taking some astrophysics classes in Univeristy, and I am just wondering if I have to take Chemistry in highschool to be able to take the classes? Or does it depend on the University you are going to?

    Math is far more important. Astrophysics relies more heavily on math than just about any other discipline to decode our observations of the universe.
