The Atmospheric Sciences – Accelerated Master’s Program degree offered by the University of Arizona is designed for advanced current UA undergraduate students to complete both the Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and Master of Science degree in Atmospheric Sciences in a total of five years.

Quick Facts

 
Full-time Duration: 1 year
Starting in: August
Tuition Fee: $10,063 per semester
Location: Tucson, United States

The Atmospheric Sciences – Accelerated Master’s Program degree offered by the University of Arizona is well suited for students who aim to gain research experience at the graduate level, and are interested in pursuing a career in atmospheric sciences. This program is currently open only to students doing a Bachelor of Science in Physics.

This program is not open to students who have completed a Bachelor degree or an advanced degree from another institution.

Educational Opportunity

AMP students focus on completing undergraduate-level courses during their first three years. By December of the junior year students must submit an online application to the AMP program.

Upon acceptance to the Accelerated Masters Program, students continue to fulfill undergraduate requirements during the Spring of the junior year including the required AMP course “PHYS436a”. Students then take a combination of undergraduate and graduate courses in the fourth year to complete their Bachelor of Science degree.

During this time, the students also begin to develop their research ideas in preparation for graduate-level research. In the fifth and final year, students focus on graduate course work and their research-based thesis/manuscript in order to complete the requirements for the Master of Science degree.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
