The graduate certificate program gives graduate students the opportunity for in-depth study and research in the atmospheric sciences. Additionally, the program allows graduate students to document their educational achievement and experiences in the atmospheric sciences beyond their graduate major.
Any graduate student pursuing a M.S. or Ph.D. degree with a major housed in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Forestry and Natural Resources, or the College of Public Health with the approval of their major professor may be admitted into the graduate Certificate in Atmospheric Sciences Program. The student should submit a formal graduate Certificate in Atmospheric Sciences application, copies of all relevant transcripts, and proposed course of study for the certificate and for their degree to the graduate atmospheric sciences director. See the atmospheric sciences web page for further application information.
The specific educational objectives are for the student to develop
• a deeper understanding of the atmosphere with an in-depth knowledge of the atmosphere from the perspective of the student’s major,
• the ability to synthesize and integrate new knowledge about the atmosphere,
• the ability for creative problem defining and solving, and
• the ability and confidence to conduct independent research.
