Education at the Department of Atmospheric Physics.

   Geophysical education at the Department of Atmospheric Physics begins at the 3rd year with the lecture course Introduction in theoretical atmospheric optics given by chairman Y.M. Timofeyev. At the same time students choose the topic of there course work.
   During 4th year students continue there basic geophysical education. The bachelor education program includes 6 special courses. To obtain the degree of  bachelor of science students have to defend the graduate work.
   The program of graduate education (diploma of Magister of Science) include minimum 8 special courses which are chosen accordingly to the subject of student's scientific work. At the end of the graduate education (2.5 years) students defend the graduate dissertation.

The following documents are available in Russian:
   The description of graduate program "Physical processes in planetary atmospheres". (WIN; KOI8).
   The program of the admission examination to the graduate program "Physical processes in planetary atmospheres". (WIN; KOI8)
