 Catholic University of America offers a new degree in space weatherDear colleagues
The Department of Physics at Catholic University of America (CUA) is pleased to offer a two-year program for graduate students to earn a Master's Degree in Applied Space Weather Research. The impetus for creating this new opportunity is the increasing need for expertise in space weather in the commercial sector, government, and academia. Although the importance of space weather and the several recent studies, universities have yet to fully accommodate the multi-disciplinary knowledge that will provide the foundation for a space-ready society of the future.
Course offerings for the Masterís Degree in Applied Space Weather Research cover both the fundamental physics of the Sun-Earth system and the technical aspects of infrastructure impacted by conditions in the space environment. Course instruction leverages the strong partnership between CUA and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. The CUA Department of Physics has recently launched an on-campus Space Weather Center that will allow students to conduct research and access space weather data and models in a real-world setting.
CUA is accepting applications for the Fall 2018 semester. Information about the program can be found at https://physics.catholic.edu/academics/graduate/ms-space-weather/index.html
Questions about the program can be addressed to space-weather[at]cua.edu.
We strongly recommend candidates contact CUA prior to submitting an application.
