Astronomy Vs Cosmology 2014


I’d like to know which career is greater to get into.
If you are answering this query please maintain these factors in mind:
1. THE EXPENSE FOR THE EDUCATION
two. THE DIFFICULTNESS OF Getting INTO THE Career
3. THE EARNINGS
four. THE Amount OF EDUCATION Needed (ANS SMARTNESS)

Also, are there different sorts of astrophysicists?
Thank You eight- ) **Please do not be rude!!

1. Undergraduate degrees can price in between $ and $ 200,000. It depends on which college you go to and if you get scholarships. Grad college can be totally free in the sciences (really, they’ll spend YOU, but not much).

2. Journalism is a dying field, and there are not enough jobs in astronomy for everyone receiving a PhD in the field (and you want a PhD).

three. Journalism? Possibly 40k – 60k with a bachelors. Astronomy? 60k – 120k with a PhD, but most likely not right after the PhD.

4. Bachelors for journalism, bachelors in physics, masters and PhD in astronomy (8-12 years total) for astronomer. You’d get a PhD in astronomy, astrophysics, or physics to function in the field, and you’d specialize in a specific area of the field (e.g., theoretical star formation, observational cosmology, optical instrumentation, etc).
