At the University of Reading studying Atmosphere, Oceans and Climate is ideal if you have a background in mathematics, physics or a closely related subject, and want to apply this knowledge to pressing real-world problems such as climate change and extreme weather.
Optional modules cover topics such as the theoretical understanding of the general circulation of ocean and atmosphere and mid-latitude and tropical weather systems.You will gain strong computing and analytical skills, as well as research skills such as project design, execution and communication. Our on-campus instrumentation lab and atmospheric observatory – as well as various field trip opportunities – provide you with plenty of opportunities to improve your practical skills.
You will be part of a world-class department with internationally leading research in all aspects of weather and climate science. We have an enviable staff-to-student ratio of about 1:1 at master's level, resulting in small class sizes that offer greater interaction with teaching staff. You can partake in our weekly weather and climate discussions, which incorporate our own real-time meteorological data.
