Degrees

Requirements

The master programme builds on the bachelor degree in meteorology or requires applicants to have completed another university programme in natural science (at discretion of the examination committee).

 

Please note that the information "Course language: English" refers to the master programme only.

Description

The bachelor programme aims to prepare students for professional work in meteorology. In particular, students will learn to apply the mathematical and physical principles of the atmospheric sciences to specific meteorological issues from the full spectrum of meteorology. They should be able to recognise, classify and answer meteorological questions in both theoretical and experimental terms and to present these answers to both a professional and a general public. Thus climatic issues form part of the programme from the onset. The programme comprises the following: Mathematics, experimental physics including physical practical, theoretical physics, general meteorology, theoretical meteorology, experimental meteorology including practicals, climatology and synoptics, together with an interdisciplinary option and bachelor’s dissertation. The master programme builds on the bachelor degree in meteorology or requires applicants to have completed another university programme in natural science (at discretion of the examination committee). Students acquire a deeper insight into theoretical and experimental working methods in meteorology. In particular, the aim is to enable students to independently address and answer current questions of general, applied and theoretical meteorology. The programme comprises modules in theoretical, experimental and applied meteorology including climatology, with experimental and numerical practicals, and an interdisciplinary option. The master programme encompasses the specialist area of the medieval and modern history of Europe and the overseas world influenced by Europe in the modern era. At the same time the ever escalating specialisation nowadays in the world of work is taken into account, and so students have the opportunity, depending on the specific teaching programme, to specialise in the history of a great epoch or a systematic or regional sub-field of the subject. The academic character of the programme means that students have the opportunity to put themselves forward for a subsequent doctorate during the course of their studies.
