Astronomy is divided into several branches such as Astrophysics, Astrometeorology, Astrophysics, Astrobiology, Astrogeology and Astrometry. These branches together help in the holistic study of the discipline and unravel the mysteries of the universe. As far as the educational qualification go, you need a B.Sc. in Physics followed by a M. Sc. in Physics/Astronomy & Astrophysics. This should be topped up with a Ph.D. in Astronomy & Astrophysics.
