Students attend an astronony class.


Are you interested in exploring other planets, stars or galaxies? Do you want to know more about life in the universe? Our astronomy program offers sections at all campuses and online. You'll graduate prepared to transfer to a four-year institution in physics, geology, math or related fields.  


The Chaffey College Miliken Planetarium is a state-of-the-art presentation space for both classroom instruction and the community.  Utilizing Measure P funds, the planetarium was upgraded with a Digistar 6 projection system in 2018. This system allows Imax-type projection, enabling participants to roam throughout our solar system and the rest of the Universe, all from the comfort of Chaffey college.  The Chaffey College Astronomy Department at times offers presentations to both the campus and the public.
