Masters in Climate Studies & Meteorology

Climate studies and meteorology is an interdisciplinary study that focuses on the activity and changes of the atmosphere as well as weather patterns, on the other side. The sub-disciplines of these sciences lead to specializations in observation of the elements that comprise weather and the meteorological phenomena. Together with atmospheric physics and chemistry, climate studies and meteorology are part of the atmospheric sciences.

Bachelor’s degrees in climate studies and meteorology focus on academic study and practice, thanks to analysis and research of the atmosphere. Large-scale climate and weather effects such as El Nino or global warming are also studied. Students who pursue a Master’s degree in climate studies and meteorology are able to study temperature, pressure, wind, humidity and rain, the changes in latitude, altitude or the interaction between Earth’s atmosphere and the oceans.

Climate studies and meteorology can be applied in military, energy production, agriculture, transport or constructions, among other fields, resulting in vast employment opportunities. Graduates can become weather forecasters in the public or private sector, forensic or broadcast meteorologists or even teachers.
