The following course guides are intended for students pursuing an MSc degree in Climate Science at the University of Bern. They provide an overview of the courses that can be taken in preparation for a master's thesis in one of the six specializations.
Recall that a specialization is not a module in the strict sense, but rather a label on your diploma that indicates the broader topic of your master thesis (see the FAQ section).
Hence, none of the courses listed below are mandatory from an administrative point of view but attendance may be required or recommended by a supervisor.
Introductory courses are primarily meant as a door-opener for students without a major or minor in the bachelor's degree in the respective field; advanced and specialized courses may be available to these students as well, but may require more effort. See also the description of course levels.
Statistics courses are highly recommended in any case, as they are an essential tool for most theses, and many professional careers.
