Meteorology and Climate and a year in Oklahoma

This course is ideal for someone who is considering a career in climate or meteorological research and leads to a master’s-level qualification. If you are fascinated by storms and tornadoes, then a year in Oklahoma will be the perfect chance to study severe weather systems up close. The first two years are identical to the BSc Meteorology and Climate course and will cover all aspects of meteorology and climate, including atmospheric science and oceanography. You will then spend your third year at the University of Oklahoma. The modules during this part of the course will be geared towards the weather of the US High Plains regions and the methods used to observe and forecast it. During your final year, you will carry out an independent research project and can choose from an extended range of options at Master’s level. As a graduate of the MMet degree, you will be well-placed to move on to postgraduate research, and may choose to return to the USA to study for a master’s or PhD at Oklahoma or other universities. You may also decide to move into a career within environmental and physical sciences or mathematics, such as flood modelling or pollution prediction.
