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.
Students can satisfy the requirements for the designated master's degree by completing a faculty-approved set of courses and a master's thesis in earth and atmospheric sciences. With approval of the School chair, students can satisfy the requirements for the undesignated master's degree by completing a faculty-approved set of courses and a 3 credit hour Special Problems course. This course must take the form of a research project supervised by the student's advisor and culminating in a written final report.
