The Earth’s climate system influences nearly all facets of our existence — from the food we grow to the communities we live in to our nation's economy and security. Climate scientists examine satellite and ice core records, predict the future climate using advanced computer models, and collect data around the world. The Climate Science option is built on a strong foundation of physical climate system science and mathematics. You will discover the complex interactions among the atmosphere, oceans, land and ice—and how these interactions impact our planet and society. Learn alongside your classmates through field courses and project-focused classes on climate data modeling and analysis.
