    I'm curious what schools should I look into for a degree in astrophysics or cosmology? Preferably in the US

    According to your previous posts, you're in the US and enrolled in community college. So I assume you're asking about a bachelors degree. Cosmology is one class, maybe two at the undergrad level. It's not a major. Few schools offer a major in astrophysics simply because it's not useful (same for astronomy). Pretty much all the jobs in the field require a PhD in astronomy, astrophysics, or physics, and those graduate programs require a physics major.
