This particular skill set is different than, but complementary to, skills used in traditional weather forecasting, and is particularly desirable in the private sector, which is the fastest-growing employment sector in the atmospheric sciences. The programs are fully online, which precludes the need for an extended absence from a current position and/or familial responsibilities, and otherwise maximizes learning flexibility.
Collaborate in online courses and an innovative capstone research project with world-renowned faculty in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences (and industry professional mentors, too, for the capstone project!).
Not yet ready to commit to a full M.S. program? That’s totally understandable! Our graduate-level certificate in Weather and Climate Risk and Data Analytics is a 12-credit program and provides an ideal bridge into the 32-credit hour online master’s degree, should students desire to continue on for an advanced graduate degree.
