Study Programmes

The Department of Atmospheric and Cryospheric Sciences offers a full degree programme in Atmospheric Sciences, from Bachelor to Master and PhD. Our teaching covers all the core subjects of the dynamics, physics, chemistry of the atmosphere-cryosphere-climate system and includes prerequisites from mathematics, statistics, physics and earth sciences. We live in the mountains and a focus of our research is on processes and phenomena related to mountains and snow and ice. This also shows in our teaching.
