A master’s degree builds the student’s expertise in a subject or specialty that he or she studied during a university undergraduate program. Students who performed well during their first four years of college have the best chance of admission into a master’s program.

You may wonder, what is an MA in Climate Change? Offered in more recent years, this type of master’s program focuses on atmospheric science and statistical models that help the student understand historic changes in climate and what can be expected in the future. Students may analyze newly collected data, work with existing mathematical models or study temperature and ecosystem changes in a particular geographic region.

Graduates will better understand the facts related to climate change and its effects on humanity. They’ll learn how to use a variety of tools that may include remote sensing equipment and specialized computer software. Students will need to collaborate with instructors and classmates while conducting research and working in the lab, building their team communication and problem-solving skills.

Advanced courses are charged at the graduate tuition rate. Students should expect tuition to vary year over year and from one institution to another. In general, applicants can calculate costs based on two years of full-time study.

Some graduates are admitted into a doctoral role after graduation, where the majority are tasked with a research project that will be published for the benefit of the scientific and academic communities. Master’s graduates who seek employment often find opportunities in energy and environmental agencies. They may write policy or work as regulators. Some work at national laboratories in countries where the effects of climate change are studied. Still others may collaborate with bioengineers on creating solutions to preserve areas from the impacts of rising seas and other environmental phenomena.

Several universities around the world are offering programs to study climate change. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Announcing a New Master Program in Migration Climate Change & Environment, opening in Fall 2022. Migration and climate change are two of the most defining issues of our time. While people have always moved to adapt to a changing environment, our awareness and understanding of the environmental drivers of migration have grown significantly over the past few decades. The adverse impacts of climate change are increasingly leading to human mobility worldwide, with significant implications for policy-makers in government, NGO and humanitarian organizations, and even for international companies. The program will benefit from a wide network of international partners, in particular, United Nations agencies, non-governmental organizations, diplomatic missions, and a wide array of academic and research partners that work on human mobility and environmental issues. -
