Overview

Society urgently needs experts with a multidisciplinary education in Atmospheric and Earth System sciences. Climate change, urban air quality and extreme weather are matters of global concern which science cannot yet completely explain. Thus, more scientific research needs to be made. Environmental specialists are also needed in companies ranging from clean technology to energy and insurance, as well as among policymakers and governments.

There is a global need for experts with a multidisciplinary education in atmospheric and environmental issues.

In the Master's Programme in  Atmospheric Sciences from  University of Helsinki , you can study aer­o­sol phys­ics, geo­phys­ics of the hy­dro­sphere, met­eor­o­logy, biogeo­chem­ical cycles, re­mote sens­ing or at­mo­spheric chemistry and analysis. You learn to work with environmental issues and deal with matters like air pollution, climate change, deforestation, extreme weather and water resources. 

Upon graduating from the Master's Programme in Atmospheric Sciences, you will have competence in:

  • applying experimental, computational and statistical methods to obtain and analyse atmospheric and environmental data
