At Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) students can choose a Earth and Atmospheric Sciences program leading to either the designated master's degree (with thesis) or the undesignated master's degree (without thesis).


Key facts

Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) offers a Master of Science in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. General requirements for both degrees are found in this catalog under "Information for Graduate Students." In either program of study, students can specialize in atmospheric chemistry, aerosols, and clouds; dynamics of weather and climate; geochemistry; geophysics; oceanography; paleoclimate; planetary science; and remote sensing.

With approval of the School's faculty, multidisciplinary programs of study are also permitted. Students entering the master's degree program need an academic background that includes a minimum of one year of university-level courses in calculus, chemistry, and physics. Students who lack this academic background are required to complete appropriate remedial courses, for which they will not receive graduate credit.
