What is a Good Masters Thesis for Astronomy?

  1. Dec 7, 2014 #1
    Good day!

    I am currently a freshman at a master's course in astronomy as preparation for studies overseas (I need a master's degree to be able to apply a master's degree overseas). I am wondering of possible thesis topics acceptable for a master's degree. The school I am currently in has a few telescopes, but no observatory. So an experimental and observational field could be a bit of a problem, so I am thinking of an empirical or theoretical approach to a subject.

    Anyone have good ideas? The master's degree has a duration of two years, it's better to start early.

    Thank you in advance.

    You mean that you need a masters to be able to apply for a PhD overseas...

    No, unfortunately. I tried applying for a master's degree overseas and one of their qualifications is that I must finish a master's degree here (at least, in the Philippines).
