EGS4001W - Atmospheric Science Honours

160 credits at NQF level 8

Entry Requirements:

As for EGS4004W, with the additional requirement of at least a half-course in Mathematics or a full-course in Physics, as well as a senior undergraduate course in climatology or atmospheric science. Experience with computers is highly recommended.

Course Outline:

The Atmospheric Science programme provides a 4th year of development for those interested in following a career associated with atmospheric science and climatology, or for progression to research in this area. The focus is on practical skills and the application of theory to the issues related to the climate system. The programme follows the same pattern as EGS4004W, with the constraint that three of four course modules must be from the atmospheric options, and the fourth module from one of the Honours level physical science options in Environmental & Geographical Science or the Oceanography department.
