The Department of Atmospheric Science offers programs leading to the Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees. The degree programs incorporate both coursework and research activity components. Students take core courses and elective courses chosen both from those offered in our graduate curriculum and by other departments. Each student's overall coursework program is individually tailored to specific needs and interests.

As part of the research activity, students are required to participate in research projects leading to the writing and defense of a thesis (M.S.) or dissertation (Ph.D). Students will work with a major professor in one of the many research areas in the department. The degree program page lists out the steps that students progress through on their way to a degree.

Basic university requirements for these programs leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees are given in the Regulations and Polices of the University Graduate Program. Specific, departmental requirements, including a listing of core courses, can be found on the Official University Catalog Listing for Atmospheric Science.
