Climate & Space academic programs are integrated studies designed to give students a broad base of study in atmospheric, space and planetary science. The Atmospheric and Space Sciences program from University of Michigan is similar to the first two years of the doctoral program, however the core courses are not required. 


Each Atmospheric and Space Sciences student from University of Michigan, creates a course schedule with their advisor. More specific information on courses is available on the Climate & Space PhD Program web page and on the Climate & Space Courses web page.

If you intend to continue your program and pursue a PhD, you should apply directly to the Climate & Space Doctoral Program. The Climate & Space MS program is designed for students interested in receiving a terminal MS degree.


Applicants to the Climate & Space master’s program may have a bachelor’s degree in any field of study, but they are expected to have completed minimum requirements in mathematics, physics, and chemistry.

Normally this would include five semesters of mathematics, eight credit hours of physics, including two laboratories, and five credit hours of chemistry. 

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Thirty semester hours are required for the master’s degree, fifteen of which must be from the Department’s offerings.
  •  A minimum of four additional hours must be in mathematics, natural science, or engineering.

General requirements

Applicants from non-related undergraduate programs (for example, Art History) will be required to take these courses before applying to the graduate programs. Additional undergraduate prerequisite courses are:

  • Four terms of calculus, including one term of differential equations
  • Two terms of physics with lab
  • One term of chemistry with lab
  • At least one course in computer programming, preferably FORTRAN or C
Climate & Space does not require a GRE subject test or the general test. However, if you are very strong in a particular subject (for example, physics) then it will count in your favor if you take the subject test and score well on it
