Graduate Core Courses

The core curriculum provides a broad foundation, with courses in atmospheric dynamics, physics and chemistry. The complete core consists of six courses, with at least three courses required for any given student. M.S. students must take at least one core course from each of the three basic sub-disciplines. Ph.D. students must also take a fourth course in their area of specialization.
