About

This Climate and Society degree track within the Professional Master Program at University of Miami emphasizes the relationship between weather, climate and societal impacts. 

Overview

The financial consequences resulting from natural and anthropogenic climate change, rising sea levels, and extreme weather events pose important scientific and socio-economic challenges, both in terms of urban planning and managing the financial risks associated with these changes. Employers in government, insurance, energy, and a number of other weather-impacted industries are seeking professionals who are fluent in both the fundamentals of business and the physical sciences.

Social vulnerability, mitigation strategies, and adaptive capacity in the face of climate change are strongly mediated by legal, socioeconomic, policy, psychological, epidemiological and cultural factors, including housing and construction codes, environmental risk perception, and health management/delivery. This theme draws on UM’s breadth and depth in interdisciplinary climatological and meteorological research, addressing risk management in the human health, fisheries, agriculture, water management, natural hazards, and coastal zone sectors.
