Atmospheric Science M.S. Degree Requirements
Required courses for the program include ATMO 710 Atmospheric Dynamics, ATMO 720 Atmospheric Modeling, and GEOG 716 Advanced Geostatistics. Electives include 3 credit hours in atmospheric science at the 700 level or above and 6 hours at the 500 level or above outside the geography department. A maximum of 6 hours of 500- and 600-level atmospheric science courses may be included in the program (excluding ATMO 505). The master’s thesis is a demonstration of a student’s ability to formulate an atmospheric science research problem, collect and analyze relevant data, synthesize appropriate literature, arrive at logical conclusions, and present the entire exercise in a public academic forum.
Details of the regulations on graduate study are included in the department’s Policies for Graduate Study in Atmospheric Science, available on the department's website.
