Masters in Climate Studies & Meteorology

Climate and Meteorology is a discipline concerned with the study of atmosphere phenomena and focusing on climate processes, precipitation, temperature, currents, and electric discharge. It also aims at forecasting these phenomena and the changes or sequence between them. The activity in this field involves the research of climatology in terms of probing, analysing, evaluating and interpreting the meteorological data with the purpose of forecasting the weather and specific climatic conditions in the different geographical areas of the world. It is also preoccupied with the development of new meteorological theories and the improvement of existing ones, with the improvement of meteorological methods, techniques and instruments.As a meteorologist you can practice your profession in government agencies, private consulting and research services, utilities and radio and television stations. A career in meteorological research can prove to be a very exciting endeavour as it can take the practitioner in some of the most unexplored and unknown places on Earth.

This MSc programme is designed to meet the need for multidisciplinary training in the study of Earth's environmental changes, both past, present and future. Focusing across the terrestrial, hydrologic and atmospheric components of the Earth system, the course covers both anthropogenic influences and natural variability and includes study of key techniques used by scientists and policymakers to investigate these issues and their potential effects. Suitable for those first degrees across a range of subjects, the programme is divided into "science" and "policy" streams, depending on student background and primary interest. The programme is designed to prepare graduating students for careers in environmental change research, consultancy and/or policy development.
