Best Part time Masters in Climate Studies 2017/2018. The Atmosphere, Climate and Ecosystems (ACE) Master Programme offers a modern education for students with interest in human activity linked to physical and chemical properties of the atmospheric, climatic and eco-systems. The programme provides opportunities to take both fundamental and applied courses in the fields of atmospheric, climatic and earth system sciences. The fundamental courses give the student the tools to use in solving relevant problems in the interaction between atmosphere, climate and ecosystems. The applied courses are directly related to certain important ACE issues, such as international agreements, global change and energy systems. The program is research oriented with leading researchers in ACE areas as teachers in the courses and a full year of thesis work normally done in a research group. Outline of the program The program starts with two mandatory courses: Global change - problem, analysis, measures (7.5 hec) and Climate change in an earth system perspective (7.5 hec), followed by optional courses (37.5 hec) hosted by several of the science departments, one more mandatory course in bio geo chemistry (7.5 hec) in the third quarter and a master thesis work (60 hec). Courses are also offered through the Nordic programme Atmosphere-Biosphere Studies (ABS). Master thesis It is recommended that your master thesis work (60 hec) is conducted towards the end of the Master's Programme. Doing a 60 hec thesis project is highly research related and beneficial for the understanding of the program topic and can be advantageous for... [-]

Campus 12 months August 2018 United Kingdom Leeds

This Masters will prepare you in the physical sciences and mathematics for a research career in climate, atmospheric or environmental sciences. It ideally bridges the gap between undergraduate studies in physical/natural sciences and engineering, and study for a PhD. [+]

This Masters will prepare you in the physical sciences and mathematics for a research career in climate, atmospheric or environmental sciences. It ideally bridges the gap between undergraduate studies in physical/natural sciences and engineering, and study for a PhD. Alternatively, if you decide to leave academia, the highly transferable skills gained from this course could lead to a research role in industry or government. Gain a broad overview of physical problems in climate and atmospheric science, together with a sound physical understanding of natural processes. Alongside this, develop highly transferable skills to conduct research in these subjects with a strong emphasis on quantitative data analysis and physical and numerical modelling. Course highlights: Interact with academics who are at the forefront of major global issues. Leeds is a leading centre of excellence across both the physical science of the climate and atmosphere science, and the resultant socio-economic impacts and processes...
