The curriculum of the Weather Forecasting track at University of Miami includes graduate-level course work in the analysis and preparation of weather forecasts, the effective use of numerical models, satellite, Doppler radar, and upper air data, and the application of this information to support a variety of specialized end-users, including agriculture, utilities, insurance, transportation, construction and other weather-sensitive industries.
Students will also develop skills in different areas of service offered by the National Weather Service, including Severe Weather, Marine and Aviation Forecasts, Hydrology, and Tropical Cyclone Forecasting.
Students will receive hands-on instruction using Weather Event Simulators developed for the National Weather Service to train their forecasters. This track also fosters skills in writing and public communication in the context of professional weather forecasting.
The Master of Professional Science (MPS) degree prepares students for science careers in industry, government, and non-profit organizations, where employment demands are growing. MPS degrees were developed and implemented nationally in response to employer demands for well-rounded, highly trained employees with a breadth of knowledge and practical skills to address emerging environmental issues and improve the management of natural and cultural resources.
