Prospective Graduate Students

The Department offers graduate courses and research opportunities leading to M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. Class sizes are small and offer easy and frequent interaction with the faculty. The graduate program has been carefully designed to provide students with a solid foundation in a broad spectrum of the atmospheric sciences while allowing students to specialize for their thesis research. Through these goals, the Department expects our graduates to contribute during their professional careers to a diverse range of issues that affect the public locally, nationally, and internationally. Nearly all of our graduate students are supported by research assistantships.
