Our undergraduate program is a four-year program culminating in a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology. Students may choose from one of five options in the meteorology major: atmospheric chemistry, environmental meteorology, weather forecasting and communications, weather risk management, or the general option.
We offer both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees and have a solid reputation for excellence in research and teaching in all areas of the atmospheric sciences, as well as in traditional meteorology. Our faculty's expertise ranges from the oceans to the upper atmosphere, and encompasses all facets of the atmosphere and its impact on our planet.
