Courses and programmes
The Department of Meteorology at Stockholm University (MISU) offers courses and programs in atmospheric sciences, oceanography and climate physics at different levels. Are you interested in working with weather and climate, with the atmosphere and the oceans? Do you want to become a climate expert, forecast meteorologist, oceanographer or a climate scientist? Or just gain understanding for what it is that affects the climate? Welcome to us!
MISU offers courses and programmes at undergraduate level (Bachelor's degree), advanced level (Master's degree) and doctoral level (doctorate degree).
All our Bachelor's and Master's courses are given both within the programme and as separate courses.
Do you want to apply maths and physics to understand what influences the weather, oceans and climate of the Earth? Then apply to our Bachelor's programme in Atmospheric Sciences, Oceanography and Climate Physics!
You will study the dynamics of the weather systems, large-scale circulation, radiation and chemistry, the ocean circulation and the climate system, and get insights in climate change and how humans affect the climate.
Building on the broad scientific expertise at the Department of Meteorology, these two years of full time studies (120 credits) offer you an opportunity to specialise in disciplines such as classical dynamical meteorology, atmospheric physics, atmospheric chemistry, environmental research and oceanography.
Following the close connection between research and education at Stockholm University, our teaching staff at MISU are all researchers within their respective fields.
PhD studies at MISU
The Department of Meteorology offers PhD studies in a wide range of subjects within atmospheric and oceanographic studies, e.g. dynamical meteorology, physical oceanography, chemical meteorology and atmospheric physics.
Doctoral studies are full-time studies during four years that may be extended with up to one year by working for the department; this include job assignments such as for example teaching.
