Is astronomy a good career? Eventually astronomers are granted university tenure, a permanent position where they generally work for the rest of their career. Astronomy is a small field, but very popular. Only those with a strong education, ability and a deep passion for the subject are likely to find a permanent position.
Is astronomy very hard? Astronomy is difficult to major in because it makes such heavy use of traditionally hard, technical subjects. An astronomy degree is about as hard as a physics degree, since the two fields are related and overlap quite a bit.
