Bachelor programme Atmosphere Sciences

Content and focus of the degree programme:

This study programme is only available in German.

The bachelor programme Atmosphere Sciences is strongly linked to other degree programmes, both on an intra- and interfaculty level. There are joint modules together with the degree programmes Geography and Earth Sciences. Moreover the mathematical bases for the description of the processes in the atmo-, hydro-, cryo- and lithosphere are created together with the bachelor programmes at the Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Sciences and Physics. Consequently building on the contents of these common basics of the studies, the students will acquire a broad basic knowledge in meteorology, atmosphere physics, climate, climate change, glaciology and hydrology. Correspondent to the location of the University of Innsbruck in the midst of the Alps reference to mountains is a central part of the education.

Definition of the field of studies

The degree programme Atmosphere Sciences deals with the nature and the processes of the atmo-, hydro-, cryo- and lithosphere.


The bachelor programme contains on one hand compulsory modules in mathematics 1,2,3, physics 1,2, introduction to atmosphere, introduction to chemistry and geophysics, instrument studies and basic practical training, radiation, micrometeorology, thermodynamics, synoptic meteorology 1, 2 programming, Alps and Europe, geoinformation 1, remote sensing, solid earth, gases and aerosols and climate, glaciology, hydrology. On the other hand students can broaden their knowledge in the elective subjects. There they can choose either the module gender research or interdisciplinary competences. But it is also possible to choose the module “practice” and to do a subject-relevant work placement in a non-university institution to put their knowledge and skills to the test and to apply them in practice. The programme concludes with a bachelor thesis.
