Atmosphere, Climate and Ecosystems, Master's Programme, 120 hec

The Atmosphere, Climate and Ecosystems (ACE) Master Programme offers a modern education for students with interest in human activity linked to physical and chemical properties of the atmospheric, climatic and eco-systems. The programme provides opportunities to take both fundamental and applied courses in the fields of atmospheric, climatic and earth system sciences. The fundamental courses give the student the tools to use in solving relevant problems in the interaction between atmosphere, climate and ecosystems. The applied courses are directly related to certain important ACE issues, such as international agreements, global change and energy systems. The program is research oriented with leading researchers in ACE areas as teachers in the courses and a full year of thesis work normally done in a research group.

Career opportunities
The aim is to prepare students for research or administrative tasks where solid knowledge in atmospheric, climate and eco-system science is of concern. Typically, the student after passing this master programme, could initiate an academic career, conduct research on industrial applications or be an expert advisor within the governmental/administrative sector.

Outline of the program
The program starts with two mandatory courses (Sep-Nov):

These two courses are then followed by optional courses (37.5 hec) hosted by several of the science departments.

The third mandatory course is given during the third quarter (Feb-March)

The final course on the program is the master thesis work

Alternatively you can make a 45 hec master thesis work and include one (15 hec)/two (7.5 hec) more optional course/s

Courses are also offered through the Nordic programme Atmosphere-Biosphere Studies (ABS).

Master thesis
It is recommended that your master thesis work (60 hec) is conducted towards the end of the Master's Programme. Doing a 60 hec thesis project is highly research related and beneficial for the understanding of the program topic and can be advantageous for continued studies.
