Future studies

Dal's Diploma in Meteorology (D.Met) program prepares you for further studies in various sciences, such as physics, engineering, or meteorology. If you combine a Bachelor of Science with a major in Physics with the D.Met, you could go on to do a master's degree in either physics or meteorology.

After your master’s, you could pursue a PhD. This path can lead you to post-doctoral research work, where you’ll take on a theoretical or applied research project—possibly developing technologies that help us better understand climate change and the long-term effects of global warming.

Here are some of your options for future study after completing a BSc and the one-year D.Met program:

  • Bachelor of Environmental Design Studies (BEDS)
  • Engineering (BEng and MEng)
  • Master of Science (MSc)
  • Master of Meteorology
  • PhD
