The Atmospheric Sciences - Accelerated Master's Program degree offered by The University of Arizona is well suited for students who aim to gain research experience at the graduate level, and are interested in pursuing a career in atmospheric sciences. This program is currently open only to students doing a Bachelor of Science in Physics.
This program is not open to students who have completed a Bachelor degree or an advanced degree from another institution.
AMP students focus on completing undergraduate-level courses during their first three years. By December of the junior year students must submit an online application to the AMP program.
Upon acceptance to the Accelerated Masters Program, students continue to fulfill undergraduate requirements during the Spring of the junior year including the required AMP course "PHYS436a". Students then take a combination of undergraduate and graduate courses in the fourth year to complete their Bachelor of Science degree.
During this time, the students also begin to develop their research ideas in preparation for graduate-level research. In the fifth and final year, students focus on graduate course work and their research-based thesis/manuscript in order to complete the requirements for the Master of Science degree.
