Why study this course

This well-established programme was developed in response to industry and research institution requirements for applied meteorologists and climatologists. This demand continues, partially due to the growing attention of the society to climate change, its mitigation and adaptation to it.

This programme provides comprehensive training in understanding, modelling and prediction of atmospheric processes; as well as the collection, management, supply and application of atmospheric data for the needs of a variety of public and private sectors. The course also demonstrates how these create opportunities or pose problems for the successful operation of natural and human systems. Our aim is that upon graduation you will be able to compete for careers in Meteorology and Climatology.... [-]


Master of Science in Meteorology

Goethe University Frankfurt
Campus Full time 4 semesters October 2018 Germany Frankfurt

discipline deeply rooted in physics, investigating atmospheric processes by experimental-empirical and theoretical methods. Besides to physics and mathematics it also has connections to chemistry, oceanography, hydrology, and geography. [+]

Meteorology is the science of weather and climate and much more! It is a geosciences discipline deeply rooted in physics, investigating atmospheric processes by experimental-empirical and theoretical methods. Besides to physics and mathematics, it also has connections to chemistry, oceanography, hydrology, and geography.

Other than in the bachelor program in meteorology, where the scientific foundations are laid, here students have extensive freedoms to structure their curriculum according to their personal preferences. From the first semester on, staff from the various research groups systematically prepares them to research which they will do for their master’s thesis. Possible directions are... [-]


MSc in Atmospheric Sciences and Biogeochemical Cycles

Lund University
Campus Full time 2 years September 2018 Sweden Lund

This Master's program is multidisciplinary and versatile. It will provide you with an in-depth understanding of general atmospheric science, biogeochemical cycles, and processes in land-ecosystem-atmosphere interactions. [+]

Program overview

The program is multidisciplinary and offers a versatile education in atmospheric sciences, taught by leading scientists within the field. It will provide you with in-depth understanding of general atmospheric science, biogeochemical cycles, and processes in land-ecosystem-atmosphere interactions. You will gain knowledge of a broad range of topics within fields such as environmental physics, atmospheric chemistry, meteorology, physical geography and ecology. You will also learn how to use advanced computational and laboratory-based methods and gain experience in field measurements and operations.

There are 14 partner universities from different Nordic countries in the consortium responsible for the program and the intention is that you select courses from several of them to tailor your profile in the program. Students have the opportunity to apply for a dedicated scholarship to cover travel and living costs when attending courses at partner universities in other Nordic countries.... [-]


Master in Atmospheric Sciences

University of Helsinki
Campus Full time 2 years September 2018 Finland Helsinki

Society urgently needs experts with a multidisciplinary education in atmospheric and Earth System Sciences. Climate change and issues of air quality and extreme weather are matters of global concern, but which are inadequately understood from the scientific point of view. Not only must further research be done, but industry and business also need environmental specialists with a strong background in natural sciences. As new regulations and the European Union directives are adopted in practice, people with knowledge of recent scientific research are required. [+]
